    Annie Hall had nothing to say? George Bailey had nothing to say? Captain Willard? Truffaut told us nothing about the human condition? Robert Altman made all those wordy films because he was just interested in a little light entertainment?

    For every Shakespeare there were probably 30 others cranking out crap, even 400 years ago. It doesn't look that way to us because the crap didn't survive the winnowing of history.

    I love me some Shakespeare, but he's not the only tool in the shed.

    You can call it "class warfare" -- we call it "common sense"
