>From Ron Rosenbaum: "Did Shakespeare

That's ridiculous. Not only is there the sonnet David Basch brings up,
but isn't the fact that Shakespeare married her evidence of anything
pertinent? And the fact that he retired to the house in Stratford where
she lived when it's clear he could have stayed most of each year in
London, away from her? There's no conclusive evidence, but there is
surely evidence, that he loved her. I would say there's evidence that he
didn't, too, I just don't think it very strong.
