More on the new Shakespeare

A very thoughtful take from Britain's Channel 4 on the new Shakespeare portrait. The gist: the physiognomy of the "new" portrait lines up quite well with that of the First Folio engraving, and there's an inscription, “Principum amicitias!” (roughly "Beware the alliances of princes!") taken - perhaps tellingly - from one of Horace's odes to a playwright. Hmmmmm.
