Tuesday's Notes and Links

Low-Brow Aesthetic, High-Brow Ideas 3: Musical Theater
What, I need to write more?

Philosophical Question
I caught some of PBS’s documentary on Marie Antoinette last night. So, later evidence has revealed quite clearly that Antoinette committed treason (while France was at war with Austria, she was sending military plans to Vienna). However, during her trial, there was no evidence whatsoever of treason but she was convicted and executed. So, does that mean she suffered an injustice, or did she deserve it?

It's about Shakespeare. It's about hangovers. Just read it.
