The following is an excerpt from a November, 2006 media interview with Ken Rand on his latest book, Dadgum Martians…

Norilana:

“Whatever in the world gave you the original idea for writing this book?”

Ken Rand:

Since I was a wee tad, I’ve admired the irreverent twangy wit and wisdom of Mark Twain. I’ve always wanted to be Mark Twain, or at least compared to him.” 

On April 21, 1910, author Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known as Mark Twain, died in Redding, Conn.

On April 21, 2009, author Ken Rand (also known to me as Kenny Whitmore) died in West Jordan, Utah.

RIP Kenny. You made him proud. –wj
