EWMT#1 (Part One)
Part One of An Evening With Mark Twain
Beginning with an exceptional speech that will be invaluable to any student of Asian Affairs or Philippine history. 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.
