    Sorry Terry, but my mind is more toward the modern droll. I preferto imagine the WT as an episode of MXC.

    - Don't get eliminated! -

    Nothing, Willie wrote about people being people. The WT write about people being borg.

    This isn't Will writing for the WT, but Helena (from A Midsummer Night's Dream) facing a Judicial Committee:

    O spite! O hell! I see you are all bent

    To set against me for your merriment:

    If you were civil and knew courtesy,

    You would not do me thus much injury.

    Can you not hate me, as I know you do,

    But must you join in souls to mock me too?

    If you were men, as men you are in show,

    You would not use a gentle lady so;

    Oh for a muse of fire

    that would ascend the brightest heaven of invention

    A District Convention Platform for a stage

    Elders and COs to act

    And GB/Branch members to behold the swelling scene

    Then should the Warlike Jehovah like himself ascend the Port of Mars

    and at his heals leshed in like hounds

    should famine, sword and fire crouch for employment

    I love it!!

    MORE! MORE!!

    WE have such clever, well read people here on JWD! I've often said that, since I became part of the group........and I truly mean it. I myself never developed a fondness for the Bard, hence my non-involvement thus far in this fascinating, creative thread!
