Whoda thunk?

Earl the Squirrel's Rule #64
     Nanette Asimov, niece of Isaac, reports of "Shakespeare getting little love from American colleges."  Apparently, only 4 of 52 major U.S. universities require even one course on the Bard for its English majors. 

     It's almost like there is a prejudice against things we don't use or don't think we use anymore.  Why, next we'll hear that our children are not learning Latin and handwriting!
     Gee, who could have predicted that contemporary poetry being dead for more than half a century would begin to adversely affect interest in the classics?
