Bob Smith will lead weekly discussions of Shakespeare’s Othello at Greenwich Library starting Wednesday, Oct. 5, at 7 p.m., in the Cole Auditorium.
Othello is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in approximately 1603. The work revolves around four central characters: Othello, a Moorish general in the Venetian army; his wife Desdemona; his lieutenant, Cassio; and his trusted ensign Iago. Because of its varied and current themes of racism, love, jealousy and betrayal, Othello is still often performed in professional and community theaters alike and has been the basis for numerous operatic, film, and literary adaptations.

Sometimes I think a life in politics is the best life possible for people prone to criminal behavior and illicit sex, especially in France and Italy, where every misdeed and indiscretion and felony is forgiven and forgotten.
A guy like Anthony Weiner, the disgraced New York congressman whose sexting proclivity led to his downfall, could be elected president in those countries — without even speaking the language. As it is, pretty soon he’ll have his own talk show or technology column in Maxim.Then, there’s Dominique Strauss Kahn, aka DSK, aka the Great Seducer, aka Hot Rabbit, who allegedly chased the hotel maid down the hall and allegedly had sex with her, which may have allegedly been consensual, and faced charges for all sorts of sex-crimes and was sent to Rikers Island and then put under house arrest and was later released because the maid was allegedly a liar and con artist and maybe something worse.
