Subject:        let slip the dogs of war

Has anybody noticed that Henry V is probably the most performed
Shakespeare play this summer?  Shakespeare in the Park (NYC) is working
on it now as well. Is this usually the case in times of war? I suppose
it might have to do with a leader manufacturing reasons to wage war in
order to distract from domestic issues. But it lends credence to this
play's resonance as an anti-war piece. At least that is how I see it.
