It's more fun that way, Al.  Just as George Galloway is more fun than
Norm Coleman.

"Sometimes I get a little frightened when browsing the British press.
Why is it more vicious than American media?"

But isn't Betts's article fantastic? Brilliantly written and mostly
right. Some real "I wish I'd said that" phrases to savour.

Oh, in this matter, I'm very glad the press can be vicious. Rylance
deserved the kick.

When I read earlier this year that Rylance (along with, another shock,
Derek Jacobi) does not believe that Shakespeare wrote any of the plays,
I was glad to know that he was leaving Shakespeare's Globe. The
Shakespeare Oxford Society was so proud of having two jewels in their
jester's crown!

It not only denigrates WS, but the other men who actually did write
parts of the plays, from George Peele to John Fletcher.

As for Pericles - has anyone actually EVER seen a good production of it?
  I've love to hear about it. We've had two gos at it here - damned
difficult. No wonder they left it out of the first folio.
