I finally managed to catch up on my newspaper reading, only to observe two interesting facts. One of our newspapers at least managed an attempt to cover the outstanding ETC effort 'Hamlet' even though it didn't possess the necessary erudition to review same. Search though I may, I found absolutely no reference to this most ambitious production in the June 18th edition of that other newspaper. They covered the phony Elvis. They covered Scooby-Doo. But somehow they seemed to break their collective neck looking the other way when a classic like 'Hamlet' came to town. I'm wondering if they might want to consider changing the newspaper's name to "Eureka Springs Times-Yokel."
