I have not seen any " commercial self-promotion"
The last thing I saw was about a Twain play in Chicago.

I have no problem with people talking about plays and lectures and things on Twain.
How else are we to find out about them and attend if we are in that area?

Subject: a hearty amen

I would add a hearty amen to Professor Cosgrove's complaint about = commercial self-promotion becoming far too common on the Twain list = serve.  Alas, this is not the only such forum being so infected.  But = what can one expect?  Tawdry times beget tawdry behavior.  Or perhaps = Professor Cosgrove and myself are sadly infected with "emerititus," = being now old codgers sniffing disdainfully at the "brave" new world we = find ourselves in.  Or would that be "dinosauritis"?  Whatever, I do = miss the sprightly exchanges which have so enlivened the forum.  Perhaps = the list's monitors need to pay closer heed to what is being posted.
