What a sorry-assed world we live. Clemmons wrote of life he lived and observed in his era. Huck, Tom, Injin Joe , and Jim were my childhood friends. (Forgive me Aunt Polly, you were the practical and grounded adult). I read and re-read Clemmon’s books many times as a youth. Those that take political umbrage to Clemmon’s books are so lacking in intellect and literary understanding. These are the same idiots that took our Stephen Foster’s music without a murmur from the unwashed. Shame on us! I am still extremely pissed that I could not find an un-edited , “politically un-correct” copy of “Tom Sawyer” or “Life on the Mississippi” to give to the grand children. Try searching for “Song of the South” featuring Uncle Remus. Good luck with that!
