Susan St. John writes, "and thank you to Clifford Stetner for giving me
the biggest laugh...I'm feeling a need to go out and buy a kitten just
so I can name him: Titus Andronicat or Titus Andronipuss or I could just
rename my dog Titus Andronicur."

OK: name the poor kat: Will.

OK: this ought to have Hardy cease this thread, but I cannot resist: I
could rename some members of SHAKSPER, none in particularly, ROTFLOL,
Titus Andronicuss!

 From a recent post on the naming of the kitten: "Well, OK, it's not
scholarly Shakespeare activity, but I must say it's a welcome relief
from all the nastiness and backbiting that so frequently appears on this
list."

Gosh, it's the nastiness and backbiting that I tune in for. At least you
know where folks stand. No shows of tweedy gentility. Let nastiness and
backbiting thrive, I say. And when a gesture of true courtesy makes it
through the gauntlet, let us savor it; then back to the bile, both
colors, and buckets of it.
