"To Be or Not To Be"
#21
Minor style comment:

Why is it called "to be or not to be"?  I don't see how that's reflected in the content of the article, and in the context of Shakespeare it had to do with contemplation of suicide.

I think using a cliche phrase as a title, especially when it is not clearly associated with the content, is confusing and also (apologizes, but this is how I feel) seems juvenile or at least unprofessional.  Though sometimes it is, unfortunately, done for magazine articles, etc.

But if you look how many things under the sun are called "to be or not to be" there are bazillions of them and you'll get lost in the noise...
