Mark Twain’s Beef With the Fourth of July

Twain of Fools

One of my favorite lines from a movie is in Hannah and her Sisters when Max Von Sydow says, "If Jesus were to come back and see what was being done in his name he'd never stop throwing up." Looks like the same can be said for Sam Clemmens. Thanks for yet another great piece!

Poet and SoMA friend Laurel Snyder sends us her Fourth of July song, noting that she can't "do it justice without the little dance and the melody":

Happy happy firecracker!
Happy Bratwurst too!
The tyranny of British Kings
Is not for me and you...

So throw your tea in a harbor!
Fire your 21 guns!
You've traded in those British Kings
For Fat Republicans...
