My Brain Hurts

I have a headache and don't feel like writing.

Except to say that I watched NOW with Bill Moyers earlier today. Being an odd numbered month, it was pledge drive time. So, he had Hal Holbrook on there talking about his one man Mark Twain show. Reminded me to read more Twain. Holbrook, or "Wild Bill McKenzie" as he'll best be remembered, was cantankerous like an 80 year old ought to be. Possibly more- Moyers correctly noticed that it became difficult to tell where Holbrook ended and Twain began. Seemed appropriate in these crazy times to be re-examining Twain. I certainly heard the word 'nigger' more times than I have in a long time.
