William Shakespeare was an amazing dude.
Born 443 years ago today, he wrote brilliantly about so many subjects: love, power, Westport…
Westport? Of course!
- Taking your dog to Winslow Park: “Out, damned Spot! Out, I say!”
- Investing with Bernie Madoff: “All that glisters is not gold.”
- That !@#$%^&* new McMansion right next door: “What light through yonder window breaks?”
- P&Z and ZBA meetings: “The first thing we do, we kill all the lawyers.”
- The Board of Finance, explaining why this year’s budget must toe the line: “Nothing can come of nothing.”
- Our healthcare crisis: “The patient must minister to himself.”
- Our countless banks, which no one ever uses: “Neither a borrower nor a lender be.”
- What you’ll find at Balducci’s, now that it’s been sold: “Eye of newt, and toe of frog/Wool of bat, and tongue of dog/Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting/Lizard’s leg, and howlet’s wing.”
