    Your Twain-iness is timely. Once again parents here are trying ban Huck Finn from the mandatory reading list at a local high school. Having to discuss it makes their kids uncomfortable. And we can’t have that. Seriously. The don’t even get that THAT’S THE POINT! Wouldn’t want to learn something from our collective past now would we? In my opinion it should be mandatory reading for every one every 5 years. Nothing like recognizing the ugly in the past to reveal the ugly in the present.

    Delving into his other works always makes me think that if only more people “got” Twain, we’d never have to go there again.

    But then again, that’s most of the problem with most things isn’t it? Pop culture (ok, read that as TV) has made us a very literal, face-value society. The subtleties are lost for the most part.

    Really enjoyed regional foray #1. Thanks.
