If you have access to a teenager, don't bother him/her. None of those
questions refer to rock 'n' roll before the age of ten if someone was
born in 1981. Ask a boomer.

I asked a group of bright twenty-year olds to bring in contemporary
references to Shakespeare in our last sessions. Richard Burt would have
been pleased. (Tromio & Juliet; Star Trek; DeCaprio &c)

Hey, my combined knowledge of Shakespeare and pop culture is finally
