I posted a link to this article because I thought it might be of general
interest, but also because I was wondering if anyone thought it said
something about the peer review process.  Clinical Infectious Diseases
is a respected publication with a healthy impact factor.  Are there
similar humanities titles that would accept my musings on nucleic acid
sequence--based amplification?

Dear Colleagues,

Shakespeare's plays indicate to me that he had generally a very positive
view of women, other than Lady Macbeth, who was very pushy to say the
least. I could just hear S's wife give him what for in the matter of
bringing in some pounds. That would send any man off to London to get
away from it all.

When Will made good along the Thames, he still harbored some resentment
toward the little woman back home for kicking him out of the house with
her critical harangue ringing in his dome.
