A rare TD misquotation:

Postby Mike » 18 May 2013, 23:04

From his latest PJ Media article:

What, then, is the neonatologist to conclude from these inconsistent results? He cannot, like Tybalt, just exclaim, “A curse on both your houses!” He has to make a choice.


Actually, it's "plague", not "curse", and it's spoken by Mercutio when killed by Tybalt. From someone as well-versed in Shakespeare as the good doctor that must count as a true one-off!

For anyone who doesn't know of them, his pieces in PJ Media (usually dealing with recent medical research and dilemmas or misunderstandings that arise from it) are always worth a read.

The one that really got me was when he didn't realise that a nihilistic rock musician's lyrics were a quote from 1984.
