Just to be Clear

I categorically deny that I am the father of Anna Nicole Smith's baby.

I also did not have anything to do with prescribing or providing whatever medications she was or wasn't taking.

Had she asked me, I would have suggested she read Timon of Athens and Julius Caesar, along with, perhaps, Doctor Faustus. Had she been busy reading those, she would have had far less time to do other, potentially more dangerous, activities.

Alas, she didn't ask.

If other people wish to ask for early modern reading suggestions, I would be happy to share ideas.


  1. Ah, potentially more dangerous.

  2. I think I would have suggested that she read Madame Bovary.
