Besides the intellect, sagacity, common sense and humanity inherent in this essay, we are treated to the mellifluous voice of Michelle Fry of Baton Rouge, La. who is our narrator. It’s a win-win for those that tune in.

It was aptly addressed to "Those Sitting In Darkness" by which Mark Twain meant the general public who had little access to the truth via their media of the day. (ring a bell?) We finish with a hilarious description of Mark Twain's coping with the then newly popular telephone and how weird it was to hear "one sided conversations" for the first time in human history. Similar to when people first got Bluetooth and everyone thought they were schizophrenics for talking out loud on the bus.
