"We have here recovered the most dangerous
piece of lechery that ever was known
in the Commonwealth"

Much Ado About Nothing, Act III, Scene 3, Lines 160-162.




Editorial note: The title of the play may be inapt, but the lines are highly appropriate. This guy deserves a suitably Elizabethan-era punishment...

Will Shakespeare is currently in negotiations to buy Blackfriars Theatre, to give The King's Men acting company an indoor venue for winter performances. He was unable to furnish me with a quote for the weekend.

Plus, I had to work at the clinic this weekend. Last minute substitution for one of my colleagues. It wasn't too bad for a Saturday. I gave a newly-diagnosed cancer patient something for the pain. And I had a facepalm 15 minutes or so trying to convince a panicky first-time mother that her perfectly healthy little angel was all right, and that 97.6F is NOT a fever...

Next weekend, William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day will return!


"I'll be back..."

I truly believe we will all live in peace and brotherhood someday. And so that I don't lose my faith in humanity, I will live my life as if that day had already happened.
