I pointed out in the Marlovian newsletter months ago that Ben Jonson's Invitation to a Grave Friend (quoted in Garrison Keillor's Writer's Almanac - DECEMBER 22 - 28, 2003) refers to thought-to-be-dead Marlowe.

The Great Idiot Debate

I've just been rereading previous posts in this thread and so much was concerned with Neil Brennen, who seems to have dropped his earlier pseudonym, and I had hoped to drop him as a topic, but after many weeks, checking in at HLAS to see how a new Baconian friend was faring there, I found that Brennen's venom continued dripping. Must I stomp on his head?

You see? So I wrote the following to post to HLAS (but have not posted):

Greetings to my old friends, and hello to new ones. To my enemies, peace.

I suggested to Ms. Cooper that she join this group because of the literate discussion she would find here. I forgot about Brennen the bully, whom I find still denigrating my name. So excuse me while I address him directly.

Brennen--I've neglected HLAS lately because I have been deeply engaged in other matters, but now I find you disparaging me in my absence (unmindful of the Golden Rule), so I remind you that you are both a liar and a coward, as I pointed out in the Chess newsgroup two months ago. Yet while I've been away, you have continued to dump on me and my website. So I must challenge you to a public debate in Philadelphia. The topic "Twice-Told Tales by Idiots: Marlowe, Bacon and the Shakespeare Debate."

No more about Brennen.
