"Bill Arnold" "writes", "Excuse me? ... Who said anything about
Christmas? Not me."

Yet here are "his" "words" "written", or "typed" by the "author" "Bill
Arnold" in his "message" dated "22" "September", presumably "intended"
to be "conveyed", i.e., "transcribed", "transmitted", "translated" by
the "editor", "moderator" of the "SHAKSPER" ".net" "forum" to it's
"readers", "members", "users", "disputants", "witnesses", ":"

>OK: here's the opening scene, in a nutshell, no Claudius, no Gertrude,
>just some guards in the dark, on the castle wall, and a "spirit" which
>"dares stir" and Hamlet, for whom the play is named, is invoked, to an
>audience, chilled to the bone at this chilling opening, to set the world
>right, again, at the anniversary of the birth of the "Saviour" of them
>all, agreed?
