Mark Twain Had the Right Idea
A subscriber to a paper once edited
by Mark Twain wrote him stating he
had found a spider in his paper and
wanted to know if it meant good or
bad luck. .
Mark replied :
"Old Subscriber: Finding a spider
in your paper was neither good luck
nor bad luck for you. The spider
was merely looking over our paper
to see which merchant is not adver
tising, so that he can go to that store,
spin his web across the door, and live
