Subject:        Doubtful it stood

SHAKSPER is clearly not immune to the curse associated with the naming
of the Scottish Play.  The "M" word is used and two correspondents
translate it as the character and not the play. A third repeats the
previous misuse of "comments" by a fourth alongside the correction of
the latter. All this when the thread in a parallel universe is the
ambiguity of words. Didn't Shakespeare write a play about this sort of
confusion? No, it would have been condemned as an improbable fiction!

Let this pernicious hour stand aye accursed in the calendar.

Best,
Graham Hall
