Comment:        SHK 13.2472 Hamlet, CEO

Dear Eric Cohen,

'He is dealing with the ghost of his father, the founder of the firm.
His greatest weakness is his indecisiveness. He is moody and when
slighted, pursues revenge rather than stopping to think rationally.'

Your client is clearly President Bush. Please raise your hands above
your head and step away from the White House.

T. Hawkes

Eric,

As I recall, Hamlet is about 30 years of age, a perpetual grad student
type at Heidelburg U. One of my professors pointed this out and we
seemed to think it shed some light on his indecisiveness re Claudius and
the ghost. Have you ever discussed how old Hamlet is as the play opens?

The simple answer to this is that Hamlet would make an awful CEO.
