Journal Entry 12-7-10

I am looking forward to reading Mark Twain’s newly released autobiography the way some people wait breathlessly for the new Lady Gaga album. In fact, they are both American icons, one a distiller of wit, the other a master of the put on. If taste is in the mouth as much as it is in the eye, both offer a meal for the senses. I believe Mr. Twain will stick to the ribs long after Ms. Gaga has left the body.
