To hear Australia's three most prestigious newspapers tell it, nothing less is at stake than the fate of democracy Down Under. The villains? The papers' prospective new owners. So went the hostile reaction last week after Kerry Packer, Australia's richest man, and Conrad Black, the Canadian media mogul, announced a joint bid to buy the John Fairfax Group Ltd., the country's oldest and second-largest newspaper group, for $865 million in equity and debt.

The actor changed the line only slightly, a most subtle deviation from the script, but the director seized on it instantly. "There's some paraphrasing starting to creep in," said Martin Benson of South Coast Repertory, addressing veteran troupe member Richard Doyle (who'd said, "Don't hardly seem worth hanging onto at times," as opposed to the text's: "Seems hardly worth hanging on at times, don't it?").

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, is it a duck? You'd think so.
