    Much Ado About Nothing? A Comedy of Errors?

    More like “As The World Turns” or any of the other insipid daytime soaps.

    Romeo & Juliet didn’t end so well either.

    Nope, it’s just like Titus Andronicus!

    Is it true that you’re supposed to refer to that King in Scotland as M, not M——?

    I was thinking she might be on her way to replacing Cathy if she’s not careful.

    Different tribes? Alex and Toggle? It works.

    Alex and Mr. Overkill? Alex and “Sir” Duke? Alex and Jim Andrews? Not so much. ;-7

    We’re missing something when we view “Romeo and Juliet” as a tragic romance. I think Ol’ Will Shakespeare intended it more as satire: a couple spoiled rich kids get into a teenage crush, precipitate a gang war that kills some (relatively) innocent people, and finally get what they deserve in a comically-botched fake-suicide plot.

    How come I can’t allude to Shakespeare but all my students understand when I use Law and Order?

    ^Lewreader: I sent you a message yesterday and had hoped to reach you this morning before you posted but missed by a minute. Read it and answer if you want, but I will understand if your answer is “none of your business.” Have a good day.

    @puddleglum1066:

    That particular gang war had been going on for ages…

    If anything, my hope for their romance is to more closely parallel the courtship of Jessica and Lorenzo in The Merchant of Venice. Of course, it breaks her daddy’s heart, but that’s what kids are supposed to do.
