Rom where I sit... Ay Joe Marsh, As American as Huckleberry Finn About the best-read books In our town are the works of Mark Twain—who wrote Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn and all thosa other lovable, undying stories. And I think it'a because he's the most American of all our writers. He understood his fellow men--and loved them as he loved all humanity. You may remember what he said of Tolerance and Freedom —those principles so basic to our way of life. Mark Twain believed In them, of course. He fought for them, But he cautioned: "Never let tolerance become Indifference, never let freedom become license." From where I sit, that's timely wisdom for a troubled world— whether it applies to International politics, or to a man's right to enjoy a friendly glass of beer occasionally. For tolerance-respect for the other fellow's rights—is important not just in the big things, but in the little human everyday things, too.
