Subject: 	Suffering Fools

On page 11 of the new book *Shakespeares After Shakespeare: An 
Encyclopedia of the Bard in Mass Media and Popular Culture,* editor 
Richard Burt has reproduced a New Yorker cartoon with the caption, "Mr. 
Tilson will suffer you gladly now."

Surely this references II Corinthians 11, not Shakespeare. I have tried 
to think of something in Shakespeare to justify including it, but it 
looks like a mistake. PLEASE correct me. I want to be wrong about this.

All the best,
Mike Jensen
