 Cicada Brood V is about to emerge. I miss the old Times. This is but a pale fire of the old days.

Did you see this, WP?  Sort of "CSI: Bard" but fascinating.

I loved this typo, spotted the other day in some right-wing rant about people who work at McDonalds, why they shouldn't expect $15/hour.  In describing the tasks, the writer cited,

"...flipping burger, making fries, toasting beagles..."

Perhaps he was thinking of the McDonalds franchise in China??

Will Shakespeare, born and died, both on April 23.  (pedants note - his baptism day was April 26, which is sometimes given as his DOB.)

I had heard it was a day before WS, on April 22.  I am not sure what "10 days before Shakespeare" means unless it's a typo.  Cervantes was buried on the 23rd, though.  Sorry so late responding to this.  Been AFK mostly the last couple weeks.

D'oh!  Of course.  Brits switched calendars later.  And you put that so wittily.  Sad when wit is wasted on me.
