Wrong Globe, Asshats

What is it about writing mock Shakespeare that makes reporters for second-rate newspapers chortle at their own cleverness? So you read Macbeth in your freshman English seminar thirty years ago and can spell “Alarum.” Somehow reducing a complex incident that gets at the very heart of the ambiguities of racism to doggerel doesn’t really raise the dialogue or impress much.

Although minor props for referring to Joe Biden as “Fool.”
