BACK TALK

Outdoors' very last Bard mangling

October 28, 2003

Bully for you all on your "Collector's Edition" ("Why Whitney?," Oct. 14), which put me in mind of Shakespeare's "The Life of King Henry the Fifth," Act IV, Scene III:

He that outlives [climbing Mt. Whitney],

And comes safe home,

Will stand a-tiptoe when [that] day is named,

And rouse him at the name of [Mt. Whitney]....

But he'll remember with advantages

What feats he did that day....
