For you Shakespeare fans, PBS Frontline has a show this evening on just who really wrote Shakespeare's plays. There is some pretty good evidence that they were really written by the Earl of Oxford, and that William Shakespeare was just a poor illiterate slob who didn't even own any books.
Update: It turns out that the show is based on a theory that Christopher Marlowe faked his own death in 1593, and then ghostwrote all of Shakespeare's works. Hmmm.
