If you’ve seen the commercials with Scot Haney and someone I don’t care about asking for your help to save the Mark Twain house and you haven’t been moved to tears, you should move to New Jersey. The Twain house is one of Hartford’s few legitimate attractions, and other than the West Hartford Science Museum, the only good field trip destination for miles around. (The Peabody Museum in New Haven is pretty awesome but doesn’t count, since it’s not in the immediate Hartford area.)
Anyway, I am urging those of you with dough to get out your wallets and donate to the Twain House. What would happen if your kids showed up there on aschool bus expecting a fun, informative day and instead find a crack house or worse…a Starbucks?
