the Scattering is less scattered now, but previously this was also the online home of some of my academic assignments I thought might be useful to other students trolling the web looking to plagiarize (joking! there’s a special circle of Hell for plagiarists). The actual home for those posts, however, is now my other blog, Narricide. I, tragically, don’t update very often over there, but the oldies are goodies.
The Mark Twain essays, for future reference, are here, here, and here:
