But if he had not been in my school, I would not have read English and
might well have become a Math teacher. That might have been a successful
career, but, on the whole, I prefer things the way they were. In any
case, it isn't going to happen now, and it seems that only the media
thought it was: we are told that the proposal was to keep Shakespeare in
course assessment and drop him from the final written papers. But who
knows whom to believe these days?

Since there are subscribers who live in countries where the Qu'ran is
compulsory, are you going to insult it too, now?

What about the Song of Songs?

>Why not have wine lists in our literary and ethical Canon instead?

Because the point of wine is to drink it, not talk about it.
