Last week I accused conservative columnist Michelle Malkin of garbling a Shakespeare reference made by pro-gun academic John Lott. She e-mailed me and said he garbled the reference. I asked for proof -- a tape. She's now written back to say there's no tape.

This is trivial, I know. But let's not forget that for twenty years the right has accused the left of being hostile to the Western canon. When a prominent right-winger -- either Malkin or Lott -- garbles a simple Shakespeare reference, I reserve the right to turn snarky and point it out. Hey, I have to have some fun.
