Yeah, Michener died a few years ago, didn't he? Though not like Twain (who could be like Twain?), he also planted a lot of seeds of doubt in me.

But we do have guys like Krassner.

And a lot of information is being put onto records these days, a medium that wasn't around during Twain's and Ingersoll's time. Also, don't forget film and television. The record and TV poets of today would have been either writing books and pamphlets or going on lecture tours during the nineteenth century.
