We arrived quite late last night up here in Quincy, IL which is just over the border from Mark Twain's birthplace in Hannibal, MO. Our day was a little bit crazy yesterday.

What was the most disappointing was the reaction (or rather, the non-reaction) of the parents who didn't see anything wrong with their kids bullying an adult dressed as a clown.
