    If you've never had the opportunity to visit the Folger Library in Washington, D.C., to see one of the magnificent folios containing the English words and phrases penned four centuries ago which have been enriching our wonderful language for now some 400 years, eighteen of the Library's First Folios are going on national tour to all 50 states for one year beginning today January 4th in Oklahoma.

    The sortable list of cities and dates is located here:

    There is an interesting news story from NPR about the Shakespeare First Folios here:

    Be sure also to read the comments to the story, as there is some interesting and entertaining academic gossip referenced there, which alludes to one of the oldest and longest-running intriguing conspiracy theories going!

    You should run that url with the percent signs through tinyurl.com or goo.gl; the crappy realjock web software can't handle URLs with percent signs.
