happy birthday mark twain!

November 30, 1835 - April 21, 1910

When you want genuine music--music that will come right home to you like a bad quarter, suffuse your system like strychnine whisky, go right through you like Brandreth's pills, ramify your whole constitution like the measles, and break out on your hide like the pin-feather pimples on a picked goose,--when you want all this, just smash your piano, and invoke the glory-beaming banjo!

Save the Pink Flamingos

Kitsch connoisseurs champion the plastic pink flamingo lawn ornament as its production comes to an end in Massachusetts.
Associated Press

LEOMINSTER, Mass. - The day Mayor Dean Mazzarella turned 40, he got a surprise.

''After I woke up and went out for my morning run, I came back and there were 40 pink flamingos in my front lawn,'' Mazzarella recalled. ``Someone had put them there as a joke.'' Now that he's 49 -- ''the same age as the pink flamingo,'' he notes -- he hopes both he and the iconic lawn ornament that his city claims as its own will still be around next year to celebrate 50.
But the original version of the plastic flamingo may be singing its swan song.
