I come not, friends, to steal away your hearts:Julius Cæsar, Act III, Scene 2.
I am no orator, as Brutus is;
But, as you know me all, a plain blunt man.
. . . .
I only speak right on.
Diane Levin hosts the Forty-Third edition of Blawg Review at her Online Guide to Mediation blog. Shakespeare provides the theme and structure, which makes an already excellent issue even better this week -- Levin speaks right on. The Bard wrote that "Comparisons are odorous" (Much Ado About Nothing, Act III, Scene 5), but Levin "hath indeed better bettered expectation" (Id., Act I, Scene 1); Bob Coffield at the Health Care Law Blog hosts next week's issue and has a newly-raised standard to meet.
