As if it weren't enough to have a magnetic field around Jonathan Swift's final resting place (from him spinning at the outrage of the Jack Black film made from his satire) . . . now they've re-edited _Huck Finn_ to take out the "N" word and other Offensive Stuff, even though part of the POINT of the book was to show the outrage of slavery and the folly of man during that historical period.

"Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be prosecuted; persons attempting to find a moral in it will be banished; persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot."--Mark Twain

"Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed."--Jonathan Swift
