Today’s Most Tweeted Non-Mark Twain Quote

2011.05.02

“I’VE NEVER WISHED A MAN dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure.”

Whether or not Mr. Twain actually Why Clarence Darrow said these words I do not know. But for those having difficulty cheering one more death, yet no compulsion to weep for the decedent, it seems to capture the moment nicely. (Although Ann‘s “Osama Been Gotten” is nice too.)

— Neal, whose Facebook page today reads “…Having a surreal experience. Fortunately, so is everyone else.”

    According to the Interwebs, it’s a Clarence Darrow quote — not a Mark Twain.
