There's a very cool exhibit at the #NYC Met right now that includes two 16-17th C encryption devices. The book-like device is surprisingly complex, the second uses a simple substitution system that translates letters into distances.

The thing that Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet gets right that no other production seems to recognize, is that Shakespeare wrote every character (with the exception of the Prince, and Juliet who is too young and bewildered to know any better) as a uniquely tacky trash fire.

In the office, just realized I left my headphones at home, and feeling like an astronaut in an external facing hatch, hearing the depressurizing hiss start and realizing there's no helmet.
