And here, alas, those protections are abused. Hello Larry Flint. We need
your input on Shakespeare and politics. Please don't be a stranger.

The right-wing smear of the generous George Soros notwithstanding,
should someone straighten out the poor souls whose knowledge of
Shakespeare is too slender to understand that it is Antonio, not
Shylock, who is the Merchant of Venice? Soros has spent millions and
millions to educate people around the world, but still we have proof of
ignorance.
