Subject:        Shakespeare Allusion

When the government was temporarily shut down, in last night's episode
of The West Wing, a volunteer picks up trash in the west wing offices.
Someone asks her her name, and she says it's Marina.  Asked where she
was born, she says, "at sea."  I'm at sea as to why the show has this
passing allusion to Pericles, but that's undoubtely what it is.
