Somebody loves him some Shakespeare

Ok, no fair putting the rest of us to shame.  Hot on the heels of my post yesterday about donations for Shakespeare's crumbling church we have the story of the anonymous person who donated $1 million to the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival.    They're going to use the interest alone, $40k/yr,  to handle their operating costs.  Nice.

not if you ever saw the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival's work- which probably does Shakespeare more harm then good. Think of it as if someone gave a million dollars to a middle school orchestra to expose audiences to the work of Igor Stravinsky- good for the kids, but not good for Stravinsky (or the audience).
