Subject:        Merchant

Forum,

A correspondent has suggested to me that the name, Portia, has a special
significance in the context of the Merchant, something about Force in
the guise of Justice, but I can't remember the correspondent or his
arguments.   Is anyone else familiar with this thesis?
