Interviewing Mark Twain

The Censoring

Reporter: "Mr. Twain, how do you feel about the censoring of your book, tom sawyer"?

Mark: "I feel that it should not be censored, because it only has some minor language".

Reporter: "But is it appropriate for a 7th grader"?

Mark: "I feel a 7th grader should be able to read it without being offended by it".

Reporter: "What about a child under 7th grade"?

Mark: "Should someone that age be reading this high of a level book"?

Reporter: "I never thought of it like that".

Mark: "This book should not be changed for a people who are not even going to be able to read the dialect".

Reporter: "That is a very good point, maybe the book shouldn't be needed to be censored".

Mark: "Do you have any other questions for me"?

Reporter: "No I don't".

Mark: "Then I guess i'll be on my way".

Reporter: "Thank you for your time".

Mark: "It was my pleasure".
