Imelda sent me an email this morning saying that she couldn't post the link (I've pasted below) because her computer was "acting the maggot." At first I thought that might be some quaint Irish colloquialism for playing dead and then I wondered if it might be an old Irish Theatre term, perhaps coined by John Synge, perhaps not. I played a carrot once, but acting the maggot seems a real challenge, but an acting computer? What will Bill Gates think of next?

Sorry about all that. I DVRed last night's Craig Ferguson and just finished watching it. It takes a bit to come back down.

Anyway, the link below answers the question, "What is a playwright" and other stuff, too. Thanks to Potabasil.
