Do you think Nebraska should rename its capital, Clemens, NE?  Or perhaps more fittingly, the major performance center in NY now be dubbed The Mark Twain Center.  How about his puss on the $5 bill?  That would surely signal the economic collapse of the nation.  Maybe we should quit while we're ahead with Honest Abe.

Do you count Lincoln as an author? I do; in which case, Abe wins handsdown... depending on how and what you count as museums/centers, well over 4and probably more like 7 or 8, or even more... including the brand newLincoln College Center. ps: there is still no Mark Twain College, orClemens University!
