SPARTY has sent the following challenge:
This morning a host on Michigan Public Radio posed this question: Who are the three greatest American literary humorists?
He hasn't yet offered any choices of his own, but I'll start this off. When I was a much younger person, I read everything I could find in the library by Robert Benchley. I haven't read anything of his in years, now, so for allI know, I might go back and find his stuff silly or not funny at all.
So, feel free to contribute, any of you.
