I loved this comment:

Keen needs to take a second look at the works of William Shakespeare, for rabble consumers and polluters of culture have ever been with us: the Groundlings were full of beer and vocally begged for the Witches scenes of MacBeth. Now they put videos of their farting dogs on YouTube. It was ever thus, and the advancement of civilization and human happiness and greater comfort has not been compromised or decayed a single whit for such base, carnal, and lowbrow desires. As in Shakespeare, with the rabble comes beauty...and they are inseparable.

Gibbons stories are fine, but I prefer rhesus pieces.
