Yet another reason why the ABC is important

If you get a chance, listen to Philip Adams's Late Night Live discussion with Anwar Ibrahim, the former Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, now Professor: see link for how to download.

The topic? Shakespeare.

IMO this is top notch stuff as it explores issues which, I suspect, many of the media blowhards who lament the decline of Shakespearean studies in schools etc would have difficulty comprehending. As Adams and Prof Ibrahim agree, one of Shakespeare's outstandinfg qualities is his ability to present both sides of a question (this was also discussed in a LNL program last week).
