    Double Bubble Chubble Trouble: Thar she blows!

    So this is how it ends?  The undoing of Chimerica to borrow Niall Ferguson's portmanteau. Billy Shakepeare certainly  had a way with words.  Or at least whoever was posing as Shakespeare. Come on -- a guy grows in a one room school house,  leaves no artifacts whatsoever behind other than a signature with his named mispelled? He pens the definitive canon of  historical dramas  as though he were living in the court of King James.  Growing up where did you say?  You gotta hand it to those  Stratfordians, their Chamber of Commerce and travel bureau. Magnificently done genrtlemen (and ladies.)   You have hoodwinked us all other than a few of those nettelsome Oxfordians who hold that it was Edward De Vere who was the real Shakespeare.  
    When this issue comes periodically before the U.S. Supremes as a mock trial it is almost always a jump ball.  Split pretty much right down the middle. They even vote along
