Subject: 	Shakespeare Day Proposal

The Scotsman, Edinburgh newspaper, today studies the possibility of 
having a national holiday honoring WS; it might be April 23, or then 
again it might not, inasmuch as that's already St. George's day. It's 
also tied up with the current flap over who shall succeed Tony 
Blair--and no yank oughta go there!

A snippet from the article:

"PRAISING what is lost, makes the remembrance dear," declared William 
Shakespeare - but it may be a Scot who eventually helps England's 
best-known bard have a national day named in his honour.

"John Reid, widely tipped to be planning a bid to become prime minister, 
has given his support to proposals for a National Shakespeare Day in 
England, which he hopes will rival the popularity of Burns Night in his 
home country."
