    I would get riled up about this if I thought anything would result from McWorter's article except for some people thinking, "Too bad for John McWhorter that he doesn't enjoy Shakespeare's plays."

    As far as I can tell, the popularity of Shakespearean theatre has been waxing over the last decade or so. I'm far more worried about classical music finding an audience.
