For Larry Weiss and Terence Hawkes:

Thank you, gentlemen---as you are gentlemen---both, for correcting my
most grievous error . . . and, uh, "slogging through" my
almost-worthwhile "intimate journals."

I must wear my rue with a difference.

Re: Shakespeare and Marx

I've always thought Marx learned a lot from Shakespeare. Look at the
famous speech on gold in "Timon of Athens."  It's a fair summary of Marx
on the power of money and commodity fetishism. Marx certainly thought
so. He quoted it repeatedly. In that sense, Marx was a Shakespearean,
and Shakespeare a Marxist. But we all knew that, no?

Cheers,
Hugh Grady

Ms Barton may have been referring to Dick Wagner, a high-level White
House functionary during the Nixon presidency, who caused a minor
scandal by making some unwise anti-Israel remarks to an Arab oil sheik
while negotiating a lucrative deal for his boss. Aside from his
black-shirt reputation, Wagner was known as a close friend of Fred
Nietzsche, a Hall of Fame linebacker for the New York Giants in the late
50's and early 60's, who subsequently became a right-wing political
commentator, and who died of apoplexy the night Bill Clinton was
re-elected. Wagner is reputed to be alive and well and living in
Paraguay.

Cheers,
don
