Thanks for posting this, Art; it's VERy funny! It's plain that he has no experience of a real uniVERsity or he wouldn't be talking about academics trying to please their "tenure committees", a complete fiction: tenure decisions at research-oriented institutions are generally not made by committees, but by professional experts in the field (although an institutional committee may ratify the decision of the disciplinary experts). His notion that academic researchers pursue topics to please their "grant committees" is also hilarious -- it's almost as ludicrous as the notion that Mellon Grant recipients must collect their grant checks *in person* at the Mellon Bank in Manhattan!

Incidentally, Art, you should read -- or rather, get someone to read to you -- Javier Marias's recent novel _Así empieza lo malo_. Its narrator is named Juan de Vere, and the Oxfordian aberration is mentioned in chapter III.

<<National Lampoon's Animal House is about a misfit group of fraternity members who challenge the authority of the dean of Faber College. The stories were based on writer Chris Miller's Alpha Delta Phi experiences at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. The antics of his fellow fraternities, coupled with experiences like that of a road trip to UMass Amherst and its Delta Chi Fraternity, became the inspiration for the Delta Tau Chis of Animal House and many characters in the film (and their nicknames) were based on Miller's fraternity brothers.>>

"That allows me to play with Edward de Vere’s name, the “real” William Shakespeare according to some *SCHOLARS*. But no linguistic echo of verity. In fact, readers tend to forget that a narrator in the first person is as much a fictional character as any other. Only, he has the privilege of telling the story as he pleases, and of course he may lie, he may hide facts or feelings, he may be untruthful about his motives and interests. Not everything said by a first person narrator is reliable."

“When you give up trying to know what you cannot know, perhaps,
to paraphrase Shakespeare, perhaps that is when bad begins,
but, on the other hand, worse remains behind.”

_Animal House_ is a work of *fiction*, Art -- like the books of the Ogburns. As is typical of anti-Stratfordians, you have seVERE difficulty distinguishing fact from fiction.

WhateVER may be the excesses of the fictional Delta Tau Chis, Art, at least they do not participate in the defenestration of pianos!

Read the book, Art -- not the Cliff notes. Or rather, get someone with saintly patience to read it to you. Lehigh deduced that you could not write; they would *really* heave a sigh of relief upon learning that you cannot read either!

Not VERy many -- and generally *not* scholars whose training is Elizabethan literary history. The value of their contributions is best gauged by the reaction of the community of professionals in the discipline.

You won't regret it, Art -- Anne Cecil, Anne Vavasour, Virginia Padoana, and Orazio Cogno are all mentioned, and in reference to the latter, the narrator correctly points out that "para alguien de la lengua española el apellido era un mal chiste acusatorio y brutal". The aptness of the surname "Looney" does not go unremarked upon either.
