Louisville, Kentucky.  As part of the recent celebrations internationally of the 450th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s birth, his great character Hamlet has decided to run for a judgeship in a local race in Louisville.

Given his experience with his father’s untimely death, his mother’s untimely remarriage, and a stepfather who is out to get him, Hamlet is (very naturally) running for Family Court.

We wish the Prince the best of luck.
