Mark Twain's House Attacked by Terrorists

He was a member of the Anti-Imperialist League, something unthinkable in AmeriKa today.

"The Mark Twain House in Hartford was damaged by a stone thrown through a window during a vandalism spree that police say also targeted businesses along the same street. Twain House spokesman David Cash said a four-inch paving stone crashed through a large storm window of the kitchen Wednesday night, but did not break through an inside pane. Cash said he is not sure if the window was an original in the home, a major tourist attraction. Nothing else was damaged. Samuel Clemens lived there from 1874 to 1891, during the period when he wrote ‘‘The Adventures of Tom Sawyer’’ and ‘‘The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.’’ (AP)."

Could it have been anti-police protesters? Those books have bad words in them.

They caught the terrorist:

"A Vermont man who served six months in prison for taking more than $200,000 from aspiring authors to publish their books, but didn’t, has been sentenced to two more years for defrauding a Manchester woman of $28,000. Peter Campbell-Copp of Manchester pleaded no contest April 10. Two years ago, he pleaded no contest to 16 felonies and four misdemeanors, and was sentenced to six months. The Rutland Herald reports that he was accused of taking money fraudulently from authors, many of whom were elderly and disabled, and promising to publish their books but didn’t. Campbell-Copp, 65, told the court he was sorry his expectations and promises were not fulfilled in the time period he envisioned (AP)."
