Dear Jim Harner,
Thanks for the SHAKESPEARE AND SCHOOLS subscription information.  Considering
how Shakespeare seems to be the most widely taught author in the US, and
considering how deadly-dull for students and how grimly dutiful for teachers
so much of that instruction seems to be, one might hope that some similar
publication could emerge over here.  I've been punching out a "Talking about
Teaching" flyer at City College, aiming at the full-time and adjunct faculty
in our department.  There's been some very positive response, but as you know
from your Shakespeare Bibliography work, the editor of the thing has to pump
up his or her own enthusiasm for the task or it just won't fly.  Just getting
through the mechanics of desk-top publishing on WORDPERFECT managed to
wet-down the last flyer I was preparing.  Hmmm.  Maybe I need help from a
computer-elf.  A byte-fairy?  Ah, those informal networks that the
global-cottage is 'sposed to breed.  Part of my own problem is an
unwillingness to appear before others as befuddled by the machinery and the
language that I'm trying to master.  Computer-confidence-courses!  Where do
I go to sign up?  Outward Bound?  Suggestions, anyone?
                                      Yours sincerely,
                                      Steve Urkowitz (SURCC@CUNYVM)
