Shakespeare Tried By Twitter

Spent large part of a day fighting on Twitter with people who somehow missed the message of Julius Caesar and were up in arms over the lead character being cast with a look-alike Donald Trump.   Most didn’t know that it had been produced five years ago with an Obama like character thus providing more proof that Literature & Art must stay in schools if democracy is to survive.  Good article on the protest.

The Daily Beast has an excellent article on the fallout from the production.

Democracy—Not Donald Trump—Dies Brutally in ‘Julius Caesar,’ Just as Shakespeare Intended

Shame on Delta Air Lines and Bank of America for caving in to ignorance.
