UPDATE to #TalkLikeShakespeareDay: NEW PLAY! “Two Gentlemen of Corona”

Shakespeare’s birthday, and therefore Talk Like Shakespeare Day, arrived full of expectation on 22 April.  I posted HERE.

I was working, feverishly, on deciphering the manuscript I mentioned of a hitherto unknown offering by the Bard.  I missed the target day.  (I’ll have to wait until February, perhaps, to bring out a strange new work by Christopher Marlowe named, as far as I can tell, “Doctor Fauci”.)

In any event, who needs Marlowe when Shakespeare is in the house.

Praise the Lord

Texas ends emergency ban on elective abortions, but questions remain

CNA Staff, Apr 24, 2020 / 06:00 pm (CNA).- The controversy over whether Texas abortion clinics must comply with coronavirus-related emergency orders to halt elective surgeries statewide has now been rendered outdated by a new executive order allowing some surgeries to take place.

However, there are continued questions about abortion clinics’ refusal to comply with the ban when it was in effect. And in Forth Worth, medical professionals have filed a lawsuit which says the city’s current emergency orders banning surgeries should also ban abortion.

The office of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton in an April 22 federal court filing said there is “no case or controversy remaining” for pro-abortion rights groups seeking legal injunction,, given that abortion providers have certified their compliance with the governor’s new order, Reuters reports.

Following Trump’s halt to US immigration, bishops call for solidarity

CNA Staff, Apr 24, 2020 / 05:13 pm (CNA).- As the Trump administration suspends immigration to stem the spread of coronavirus, the United States’ bishops encouraged global solidarity, saying the order promotes hostility instead.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order April 22 which would block a large portion of immigrants from accessing green cards.

“In this moment, our common humanity is apparent more now than ever. The virus is merciless in its preying upon human life; it knows no borders or nationality,” read an April 23 statement issued by Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles, president of US bishops’ conference; Auxiliary Bishop Mario Dorsonville of Washington, chairman of the USCCB’s Committee on Migration; and Bishop Jaime Soto of Sacramento, chair of the Catholic Legal Immigration Network.
