I think I can sense already that this will be both one of the longest
and most profitless SHAKSPER "threads". For US consumers only, perhaps.

How wonderful it would be if our bodies and brains had a "delete",
forget-for-ever button. Meanwhile the Shrub's "crusade" goes on, and may
yet destroy us all. Strange times.

I may need to be disabused here. I was schooled in the belief that in
Elizabethan and Jacobean Britain (as in most places through much of
recorded history) while there were certainly people carrying on same-sex
intimate activities and affairs, there were no homosexuals. By that I
mean that the sexual attraction or activity was not made part of
people's identity. Homosexuality involved what people did but not who or
what they were.

Help?
