Saw the segment this morning, excellent!
Will be interested in learning more about the new story itself.
By the way, I'm still interested in hearing from anyone who can shed some light on why Twain rarely mentioned his attempt at surfing while in Hawaii. For the past several years I've exhausted all sources attempting to document instances during Twain's lectures tours where he actually mentioned surfing.
I'm wrapping up my manuscript on the history of surfing and have little time to include any more about Twain.
