    Shaw's Perfect Wagnerite is tremendous.  My friend just did two talks -- Shaw and Helen Keller (an unfortunate incident) and Shaw and Oscar Wilde -- tremendously satisfying.

    Sad that young people have never heard of Shaw -- one of the geniuses (and Nobel Laureate) of Ireland.  I claim him as a contemporary since he died a few months after I was born.  

    I envy your teaching.  I used to teach high school literature then realized I was going nowhere and went for a JD -- enviro law mostly.  I still love literature but don't miss teaching folks who would rather  tweet than read Chaucer, Shakespeare, Shaw, a zillion Asian, African, South American, etc. writers.  

    I hope you join us frequently, Nespolo.  You are a lovely voice.  I'd love it if you would join our buddy list.  You don't have to have ever smoked -- you could have quit a zillion years ago or yesterday or don't want to quit yet.  We are an open, free and zany society of eccentrics who are always fun.    If you want to be on our buddy list just for the hell of it, let me know.

    Thanks again for being here today/tonight.
