Gayle of Gayle's Bard Blog sent me this most excellent link to a blogger project celebrating Shakespeare's birthday. At the website you'll see links to something like 100 bloggers interested in all aspects of Bard-analia. If you check the Bad Lawyer archive you'll find awesome links to cross-posts by Gayle and the Bad One on the Merchant of Venice re:creditor-debtor trial involving Shylock's demand for a "pound of flesh."
Not to confuse the issue, but today is also speaketh like Shakespeare Day in Illinois. So if you happen to be in Chicago, good luck. Kiss an English major.
And remember: As, painfully to pore upon a book/To seek the light of truth, while truth the while/Doth falsely blind the eyesight of his look,/ Light seeking light, doth light of light beguile/So ere you find where light in darkness lies/Your light grows dark by losing of your eyes.
