Satire Is Not Dead

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.
