Comment:        Re: SHK 13.2319 Re: Anything Goes

Dear All (and Charles W),

Oh dear I seem to have missed Charles Weinstein's latest commentary -
but the astounded replies and squeals from the relativistic bench was
almost as amusing as Charles's usually superior commentary on the
pitfalls of the modern stage (etc.).

If it is really true that Charles has said that he is going to desist
from future commentary on SHAKSPER, I for one wish to implore him: Stay!
Speak!  Stir!

And Johnson and the 'test of time' stay with you!

Best,

Not even so much as "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis" influenced
"Scooby-Doo", in my opinion.  But surely "influence" is a dangerously
multivalent word?  One need not be a Bloomite to recognize that
Shakespeare is a major ingredient of the cultural soup we all stew in,
even the outright illiterates.
