http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0508/10045.html The United States Congress does Shakespeare. Apparently it’s part of an annual arts and education fundraiser. Never heard of it before, but it sounds like a positive thing. On a related note, I always wonder about women who say Taming of the Shrew is their favorite play. Is it that they choose to see it with a wink and a Katarina victory at the end? Or that they enjoy the debate about the real meaning? I suppose that sort of like a Jewish person saying that Merchant is their favorite?
