Before devotees of The Bard come for me, I’ve already corrected a Shakespearean reference in our Monday story on the schools consolidation case.
There was a reference to Banquo in one of the exchanges in court Thursday and our print version refers to the good General as a character from Hamlet.
Banquo was, of course, a character – living and unliving – in MacBeth.
Our thanks to the alert readers who pointed this out soon after the email edition hit at four this afternoon.
I can only plead a Shakespearean malaise from a long day in court with six sides making points and counter points. I will probably continue to be haunted by the mistake. And now I’ve added puns to the offense.
Those of you reading the online editions are also getting a separate updated story on the latest development in the schools consolidation case. At the end of Friday’s session there was a move to expedite a trial on the merits of the entire case rather than have Judge Hardy Mays rule on these early motions for injunctions and on the thicket of schools consolidation laws in the TCA. It’s another unexpected move in a story that continues to have a capacity to surprise.
“What, can the devil speak true?”
