Shakespeare would be great on CNN

(Continued)

When confronted with the young folks who have become incredibly rich because of the Internet, Shakespeare might say, “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.”

If he were to host the Oscars, his monologue might be “All the world‘s a stage, and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts.”

To those who didn’t win an Oscar, he could offer “All that glistens is not gold.”

I can’t resist the temptation to end with Shakespeare’s timeless advice on what to say to a dog who wants to sleep in the house:

“Out, out damned spot.”
