Are thinly veiled political posts a regular feature of this forum? I'm new
to it, and I became involved in the hopes of getting leads to new
perspectives on the writings of Mark Twain. I could probably come up with
some passing reference to Mark Twain germane to both sides of say the
vaccine controversy (not revealing which side I am on, or why, though I
suppose saying there is a controversy implies a stance of sorts) but I'm
uncertain what contribution it would make to Mark Twain scholarship.
