La Cucaracha (2/18/11)

Confession: I’ve never read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. One summer, when I was a kid, my mom tried her best to get me to read Mark Twain’s classic. She bought a beautiful, illustrated copy, told me it was the kind of book that appealed to young boys, and even “assigned” it to me to read over break. Unfortunately, none of her tactics worked. I browsed the book for a while, but found it to be more languid than The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Of course, now that Huck Finn has been edited to remove all instances of the n-word, I feel compelled to buy the original, unaltered version, read it for myself, and maybe even pass it on to my future children.
