It seems there are more things than ever to criticize these days, which is why when an old professor said there are no writers left like Mark Twain, it seemed a bleak forecast of unchecked wrongdoing. I am not saying we should criticize the knee jerk compassion that has been shown since the earthquake, but there are definitely things to think about. Usually I turn to the Onion for ridiculous stories that make me laugh or wince with objection, but this time they’ve paid homage to Mark Twain. And did a damn good job at that.
