Today is
Shakespeare’s birthday.
In his honor, a death
from April 9:

George C. Minden, 85, Dies;
Led a Cold War of Words

“Mr. Minden was president of the International Literary Center, an organization financed by the Central Intelligence Agency, which tried to win influential friends by giving them reading material unavailable in their own countries. The material ranged from dictionaries, medical texts and novels by Joyce and Nabokov to art museum catalogs and Parisian fashion magazines.”

“Send magazines!”
Kate Beckinsale
