I wish to state to everyone that I'm open to all comments about my 
paper, which you can send me privately, and appreciate them. Even tell 
me if I am absolutely wrong on some point or another. Forum member Larry 
Weiss sent me thoughtful comments on digressions of directorial interest 
and trial procedure. For one, he finds a Venetian anti-alien statute not 
to be improbable. His comments caused me to reexamine the script and I 
discovered the amount of rulings during the trial is more complex and 
nuanced to say there were just two, and that I attributed the timing of 
Shylock's and Gratiano's statements in response to Portia's rulings 
erroneously in part. They don't affect the gravamen of the paper, but I 
consider them no less important, and will be fixed.
