Eviscerating Twain

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 15:37

Ron Powers grinds his heels on the morons who want to disfigure “one of the most challenging, and instructive works of art ever published.” Powers asks:

Is Twain’s inspired irony really so hard to grasp? And are today’s public school teachers really so enfeebled and so intimidated that they cannot teach it?

I’m afraid the answer is yes.
