According to the date on the posts, I’m a day late.  But actually, it is still the 23rd, so I am going to celebrate it now.  I was talking to someone about the whole “who Shakespeare really was” controversy.  My feeling is that short of finding actual proof one way or another, who the hell cares?  Does it really, in the larger scheme of things, matter who wrote Hamlet or (insert favorite work here)?  Isn’t enough that it was written?  Actually, I find the crux of the arguments against Shakespeare actually writing the work of Shakespeare to be rooted in elitism.  But that’s a dispute I don’t care to throw myself into.  I have other fish to fry.

Five days until the GRE.
