The few Sacramento Twainiacs are in for a big deal when the US Postal  
Services unveils a new Mark Twain stamp with his likeness, a river  
(although probably not the Sacramento) and a paddle boat This Sunday,  
June 25 in Old Sacramento. There's not a lot of Twain-related  
activities or historical sites here even though he traveled through  
town a few times to catch the river boat to San Francisco, calling it  
variously, "The city of saloons" and "Land of eternal summer," (it  
was 102 yesterday). He also gave his Sandwich Islands talk at the  
Orleans Hotel which has recently been restored. So we'll have a drink  
in the heat in his honor. See the stamp and full story here:
