About Me

I truly believe that 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.

Having some dinner with Will Shakespeare. Ask us anything.

Debating whether to post an edition of WSTFTD this weekend. I'm going out of town, and Will is headed to Stratford.

The Globe is closed for the winter, of course, and business at the Blackfriars is cool right now. So relaxation time for everyone...

When did the Second Amendment become holy scripture?

I mean, I've read holy scripture, man, and that shit ain't in there!

We have local governments ordering "The Catcher In The Rye" to be removed from school libraries. Unjustly so.

Threatening the President's life is a Federal offense. Justly so.

You can't shout "Fire!" in a crowded movie theater if there isn't a fire. Justly so.

You can't make damaging, unfounded allegations about someone in the public press without being slapped with some sort of sanction. And justly so.

The rights of "free speech" and "free press" are infringed all the time in the interest of public safety and the public good. It's a (mostly) fair trade-off.

But don't you dare take away my weapon of mass murder?

God, I fucking hate the gun-crazies...

Gun-troll attack in 3...2...1...

Things that make you go: "Hmm". I've noticed that my threads where I'm "drinking" with William

Shakespeare get more responses than William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day.



So I have a confession to make: I don't really know William Shakespeare.



Nope. I've been faking it this whole time. William Shakespeare died in 1616 at his home in Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England. My deepest apologies to anyone who thought he was still alive and going strong at the age of 449, and wanted to talk with Will and have their questions answered by The Bard himself.

I plan on continuing WSTFTD, and also my "drinking with Will; ask us anything" threads. But I wanted to come clean, and make a full disclosure before doing so.

Thank you.

I love you all...

So does Will...

"We would purge the land of these drones..."

Pericles, Act II, Scene 1, Line 46.

Having a few cold ones with Will Shakespeare. Ask us anything.

I just finished reading "Under The Banner Of Heaven", about the Mormon Church.

Scary!

Granted, most of the scary people depicted in the book are members of the polygamist Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints, rather than the more mainstream LDS Church, but still, what a bunch of creepy, crazy, whacked-out fanatics!

If you still don't think we dodged a bullet by having President Obama defeat Rmoney, read this book.
