Yes, indeed.  I noted the several errors, considered calling attention
to them, and eventually decided to submit the story without comment.
Thank you for the additional link.  You're right: the Guardian *is*
usually better than this.  I doubt that they'll run a correction...in
light of current events I don't know that anyone will catch it, or care
very much.

While on the topic, I hope and pray (as I know everyone does) that all
SHAKSPERians, and their families, friends, and colleagues, are safe.

The Guardian is usually better than this and I assume will run a
correction(s).

Bless you, Bill. The _Guardian_ runs so many corrections that it has
been affectionately known in the UK as the 'Grauniad' for many years
past!
