MacBeth, I hear you callin' . . .

Shakespeare once suggested that life may be a tale "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." I am not that pessimistic, but MacBeth's famous soliloquy could well be applied to the recount in the race for state Supreme Court.
Actual lead paragraph from a Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel "guest columnist." How does something like that get past any editor?

Shakespeare, ffs.

I would hesitate to say idiot because there's nothing in that column that you didn't see right here -- and then some -- over the past six weeks.

Well, as Holden Caufield frequently said, "Call me Ishmael."
