Subject:        Something is Nothing

There was a review of the pro-Marlowe as author documentary *Much Ado
About Something* in Wednesday's San Francisco Chronicle.  It is full of
the usual half-truths and misrepresentations of fact.  You may read it
here:

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/chronicle/archive/2002/08/14/DD154141.DTL&type=movies

This is a key paragraph:

>>>Rubbo, who narrates and appears on camera, divides his movie into two
>>>sections. In the first he entertains the reasons Shakespeare's authorship
>>>is in doubt. The points he raises are not trivial. Contrary to what
>>>people have read for years in the introduction to their Folger
>>>Shakespeare volumes, the case against Shakespeare is fairly
>>>convincing.<<<

Anyone contacting the editor may do so here:

Editorial* as the receiver of your message.

For what it is worth, the reviewer is Mick LaSalle, who is married to
Amy  Freed, the author of the play *The Beard of Avon.*

All the best,
Mike Jensen
