Subject:        Shakespeare as Bible

Ed Taft's comment on Shakespeare being regarded as a kind of secular
Bible rings true to me; even just based on the number of allusions,
quotes, etc, that people make all the time, in ordinary life, it seems
to me that Shakespearean maxims are replacing Biblical ones.
