Subject:        Casting pearls in Bogalusa

Sometimes it seems as if Shakespeare is around every corner but for all
that he continually surprises.  Here he is in a column by Danny Haneman
in the Bogalusa, La., Daily News
(http://www.edailynews.info/articles/2004/03/22/news/opinion/op02.txt).

At the end of his column, headed "Free trade, dangerous chemicals and
Shakespeare," Haneman writes:

In an effort to inculcate my love of William Shakespeare's works in my
readers, I've decided to close each weekly column with one of my
favorite quotations. This may represent a complete thought or simply a
brilliant turn of phrase. You will find that many are aphorisms still in
use today. This first one might have been written to my wife.

Shakespeare quote for the week:

'She is mine own,
And I as rich in having such a jewel
As twenty seas, if all their sand were pearl,
The water nectar, and the rocks pure gold.'

      Two Gentlemen of Verona. Act ii. Sc. 4.

--
I would hope that English teachers at Bogalusa High School cast such
pearls to appreciative sophomores.

Cheers,
Al Magary
