Subject:        Romeo Is Banished

Mark Adderley (14.1570) writes from the land of the brave and the home
of the free:

"[...]A year and a half ago, we shelved plans to perform "Romeo and
Juliet" because the local Chief of Police pointed out to me that the
play is cited in a statistically significant number of teen suicide
letters.[...] for a local group like mine, keeping the Chief of Police
happy with us is far more important than performing the play we wanted
to.[...]" The sight of which is dismal and the mind is senseless that
told him his commandment was fulfilled. Are you mad my masters? Or what?
Are you?

Methinks that you should give your Constable the Elbow.

Censoriously,
Graham Hall
