Last Word on Shakespeare, July 28

Missing Shakespeare

Ah, July and August, when thoughts turn to the late, lamented Virginia Shakespeare Festival. It’s sad the festival died from lack of local interest. And yet Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Texas, Utah and others have Shakespeare festivals. Clearly, Williamsburg isn’t nearly as cultured and sophisticated as it thinks it is if the town’s denizens can’t be bothered to support the genius of the Bard.

Weather alerts

What happened to the alert system warning of incoming severe storms by phone or internet? I received neither on July 22, but on other occasions have been woken up in the middle of the night for nothing.
