In this year of the four hundredth anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, imagine if we all talked to each other in Shakespearean verse?  A few years ago I received a telephone call from the Roundabout Theater in New York, soliciting a donation, as I was having dinner.  I professed to be shocked. I wrote:   To the […]

This week I saw on the BBC that a British team is visiting Antarctica to study the effects of global warming on penguins.
