Subject: 3.0121  Ken Steele Appreciation
Comment: 	Re: SHK 3.0121  Ken Steele Appreciation
I'd like to add my applause to Hardy Cook's appreciation of Ken Steele's
fathering, mothering, and nurturing of this SHAKSPER forum.  Maybe "you
are what you eat," but also "you are what you talk about," and Ken has
created a way for a lot of us to talk about what we love and study and
teach and experience -- this Shakespearean community.  Leeds Barroll and
Ann Jennalee Cook and others invented the Shakespeare Association of
America, really not very many years ago, but before I was thinking
about those things.  And I was around when Bernard Beckerman brought
together a group of NYC metropolitan area Shakespeareans to form the
New York Shakespeare Society which has spawned the Columbia University
Seminar on Shakespeare and the *Shakespeare Bulletin*.  And then Ken
Steele  . . . We've all been blessed by the kindness of these
extraordinarily generous folk.  They set models for us that that
funny guy from Stratford would have smiled on.  As my poppa would say,
"Ya done good, Ken."
			As ever, Steve Urkowitz
