Did Shakespeare Actually Write His Plays?

We know so little about the Shakespeare who lived in Stratford. But, what we do know about him doesn't jive with the work attributed to him. We know he didn't pay to have his daughter attend school. Could this really be the mind that created Portia in The Merchant of Venice?

And how could this grammar school boy know so much without owning a bunch of expensive books? Not one of those survives today, also no letter nor any record of his being presented at Court.

The conspiracy theorists are the ones who manage to suspend their disbelief that the historical Shakespeare wrote the works attributed to him.

Book Review: 'Step Right Up: I'm Gonna Scare the Pants Off America'

Very interesting stuff. Come see our stage presentation of The Raven and Cask of Amontillado at the Victory Theater, 2558 Imperial Avenue, San Diego, before we close the show Nov. 6.

Women's Images In The Media

To a large extent, I agree that the popularity of Madmen, Panam, Forest Gump and The Help has to do with the frustration felt by so many individuals who nowadays feel they don’t have much of a future and envy the optimism they imagine was enjoyed by earlier generations.

Psychologically, the phenomenon seems similar to the way people who believe in reincarnation usually like to imagine they, in a past life, used to be somebody important and never one of the mass of anonymous downtrodden serfs.

Politically, this tendency is a lot like the mindset of poorly paid American workers who oppose taxing the wealthy, because they like to dream they might miraculously be wealthy some day and, should that occur, they wouldn’t want to have to share it with those less fortunate.

Sexually, it’s an opportunity to travel back in time to a fantasy world where the urge to abuse women and minorities can be indulged without inhibition.

Academically, Americans are still flunking history.

Kids Who Grew Up In SDSU Shadow Come To Campus As Freshmen

How is this even a story? KPBS needs to stop regurgitating press releases and begin operating a proper newsroom.

Review: 'Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon'

I only just realized "Shia LeBeouf" is French for "Where's the beef?"

Screening: 'The Blob'

Such fun. This is a film I never bothered to see before and it was well worth catching. Thank you so much for organizing this series of screenings.

Rants and Raves: Lisbeth Salander

I have little doubt that Ian Forbes was not knocking Fincher.

Rants and Raves: Lisbeth Salander

Could Inthebuff be some kind of paid attack dog? He seems more determined to bite the author than to read her thesis.

Review: 'X-Men: First Class'

I have a family member called Xavier and I am disgusted and offended that this so-called Xavierfan should make such a lame attack on a well respected movie critic in so contrived a manner. It is inexcusable behavior to pretend individuals with mental disabilities are being mocked here when, even my 4-year-old grandson Xavier would see it is the other way around. If you love this film so much, write one good thing about it. Tell us which of the reviewers criticisms is untrue. Make a point. Don't hide behind somebody with autism, speciously to claim the high ground. Individuals with mental disabilities face many challenges and stigma. I suggest you apologize to all of them for having attempted to use them as a human shield.
