Therefore, now when some pro-war soldier alludes to Shakespeare, we'll 
read about it on Shaksper?  Hardy, diligent and insightful--indeed 
invaluable-- benefactor to us all, just because R. Burt has shatte in 
his hatte, you need not clappe it upon your owne hedde. Thanks for 
99.99% of what you do for us. Shaksper brightens my day.  TH

It's good to know that Joseph Turcotte is reading Shakespeare. I hope he 
will extend his reading to include Macbeth. As every reader of this list 
knows, Macbeth describes how a foreign army invades another country, 
overthrows a horrible tyrant with an appalling human rights record, and 
replaces his regime with a legitimate government.

I know that it is fashionable to re-interpret Shakespeare's plays in the 
light of whatever is the current preoccupation of what we in Britain 
call the chattering classes. How strange that while everyone cites Henry 
V, no-one ever seems to mention Macbeth! Could it be that enrolling 
Shakespeare among the supporters of George W. Bush and Tony Blair is a 
prospect just too ghastly to contemplate?
