Response to Prof. Alan Nelson's review

Prof. Alan Nelson at http://socrates.berkeley.edu/~ahnelson/ (3/01): "Diana Price knows how to put a sentence together, but she does not know how to put an argument together without engaging in special pleading: that is, taking evidence that has an apparent signification, and arguing with all her might that it does not fit the special case of William Shakespeare for this or that special - and wholly arbitrary - reason."
