    “Mincing poetry.
    ‘Tis like the forced gate of a shuffling nag.” – Henry IV, Part I

Apparently the Oregon Shakespeare Festival has decided that Shakespeare is too difficult for most people.  So they have decided to “translate” all of his plays and perform them in modern English.  Can I barf now please?  The little that has been leaked about these translations is so far awful.  Why do we keep dumming down the world?  Let’s maintain higher standards, please, and have faith in the ability of our fellow human beings to understand verse with just a little bit of effort.
