Shakespeare's Sister

There's even evidence that in private, or with audiences with whom he is comfortable and relaxed, he is still articulate and even eloquent in a demotic, idiomatic way.

When I first read that, I thought it said "in a demonic, idiotic way." Which actually sounds like something I'd say about Bush.

What a nicely written, well-reasoned, open-minded, well thought out post, with a really great point about parents' ghosts not haunting their children's lives.

But, I say Pshaw! to Bush reading sixty books so far this year!

And why do I feel that way? Do I have proof? No! I'm going with my, um, gut on this one.

I don't buy it for a second. And I didn't have to hear this little exchange between Bush and Brian Williams to feel the way I do either.

Williams: So, what was The Stranger about?

Bush: Heh, heh, heh. That was a couple 'o books ago. Since then, I've read three Shakespeare's.

SS: I thought it said demonic too!



Very nice post. Lots of food for thought and light on the links. :-)

please remember to practice what you preach, lance, or all that writing will be for nothing.

by the way, that was an excellent essay. please keep up the good work.


Your comment that maybe Bush is a speed reader brings to mind the Woody Allen quip that after he took a speed reading course, he was able to read "War and Peace" in 20 minutes. It's about Russia.
