Shakespeare in ten

While checking our "who linked to us" links down on the right side, I noticed a new blog named Orthonormal Basis, who gives us props (thanks!). Courtesy of him, I found this ten minute version of Measure for Measure. This tickled me greatly, as I recall the production of Measure for Measure we did at FUS in my days there. (Technically, I wasn't involved with the show that semester, but Darwin and I did throw a kickin' cast party.) Anyway, here's a sample:
Lucio - Come with me now.
Isabel - What is your problem?
Lucio - Your brother's in the slammer.
Isabel - What is his problem?
Lucio - He slept with his girlfriend.
Isabel - Idiot.
N.B.--I was having trouble pulling up the permalink for the Measure for Measure. The second part is currently the top post, and the first part is a few posts down the page.

Thanks for stopping by! Though I must say, ONB isn't a new blog at all (just an obscure one).

BTW, I found your blog after being impressed by Darwin's thoughtful comments on Mark Shea's site; then I visited and was quite further impressed. It's great to see two witty and good writers thinking together like you and he have been.

And I'm sorry I didn't have the guts to say so before introducing myself, but my prayers are with the two of you, your father-in-law, and your baby in these most momentous of times.
