Much has been said over the past few centuries about Sir Walter Raleigh having been the authentic William Shakespeare. Does it matter to devotees of classic english literature? According to some, 'ole Bill lived to be about fifty years old. Some have the audacity to claim his parents were named Mary and John! Imagine...and Willie is apparently the most widely read author in the English language. I say that it's a crying shame when so famous a someone whose very existence can be questioned even though only a short span of time has passed.
Now Sir Walter...a rogue and adventurer if there ever was one. If he was not the person whose head was embalmed after his execution, then is that head near to Westminster Abbey that of Jack the Ripper? Alas, poor Yorick.
