Almost like clockwork the issue of the dreaded N, , word in Mark Twain's classic "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" becomes an issue.

It is a story really directed for an adult, or more correctly a mature audience.

It is a cute story properly sanitized in movies which as a child I enjoyed. Movies directed to children are different than the book which only can retain its message unmolested.

Leave Twain alone

While sorting through the perennial lip-pursing tempest about a certain word in Mark Twain's "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" - the "N-word," as we now say it - I turned for inspiration to the master himself.

"The difference between the almost-right word & the right word is . . . the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning," Twain wrote.

FULL STORY

Worth the read.
