4. Shakespeare had seven brothers and sisters. Two sisters were older than he--Joan, six years older, who died before the playwright was born; and Margaret, two years his senior. He also had two younger sisters and three younger brothers: another Joan, two years younger; Anne, seven years younger; Gilbert, a haberdasher, two years younger; Richard, 10 years younger; and Edmund, who may have become an actor, 16 years his junior.
5. Yes, three whites at various times played on the Globetrotters--Bob Karstens, Harold "Bunny" Levitt, and Abe Saperstein. Levitt, who had never been to college, was only 5 ft. 4 in., too small for competitive basketball. But he became the greatest free-throw artist in court history. He also sank 499 successive free throws. The Globetrotters offered $1,000 to anyone who could beat him at the line. No one ever did. Saperstein, London-born, founded the Globetrotters in 1927. At first he had only five players. Whenever someone was injured, Saperstein, though only 5 ft., would substitute for him. He was, if nothing else, a great dribbler. He died in 1966.
