Comment:    Re: SHK 20.0139 Middle School Drama

As a fan of Arrigo Boito, "Babylon 5", and Charles Williams, I am the 
last to cry "Vox populi, vox Dei". Nevertheless, I stand by my original 
position that a play that has been seen and loved by millions  cannot 
possibly be boring. Of all the faults that a work of art may have, that 
is the one that the base vulgar do most heartily condemn.

(By the way, I personally wear a Casio Wave Ceptor that I bought at 
Sears, but a quick visit to the Rolex website shows that any aesthetic 
judgment on "the Rolex watch" is as empty as an aesthetic judgment  on 
"the General Motors car".)
