Twain Power

There's Twain inside this book, don't get me wrong. It's exactly, precisely what you always get from Twain.
His laundry list is a Dead Sea Scroll. His lunch order is a Rosetta Stone. He has more intellectual horsepower under his fingernail after a trip to his ear than Berkeley has in a building, and that's if the building is full of janitors. At least janitors know how the world works. The buildings full of these scholars need fumigating. Lock the doors, first, from the outside. - - Sippican CottageThe Autocoprophagy Of Mark Twain
