I hardly think others can be blamed for doing to Shakespeare what
Shakespeare did to so many others. "Lone Star Love" should be allowed to
rise or sink on its own merits or lack of same, so long as they do not
violate the Truth in Labeling or Trades Description acts by actually
claiming to /be/ Shakespeare.

(But one stuck-out-tongue to the "Times" reviewer, for forgetting that
the libretto of Verdi's "Falstaff" was written by Arrigo Boito.)
