Just a coincidence!
Apparently the University of Minnesota is staging a controversial comedy, The Pope and the Witch, which includes a reference to condom use (not necessarily the Trojan brand) for birth control. I hadn't heard of this play, by Nobel-prize-winner Dario Fo, when I chose a name for my blog. I just thought Comedy of the Trojans sounded like it should be the opposite of Tragedy of the Commons, although it did occur to me that someone could conceivably write a play with either title. Given the emphasis in Hardin's essay on the need to reduce birth rates, I guess I should go see the play.
