What would Mark Twain say?

Whoa....New edition removes Mark Twain's "offensive" words.  I know these are hard books to teach in the classroom.  And Huckleberry Finn is always going to be challenged.  But removing words that can offend does not seem like a solution to the problem.  Now it's just being ignored.  Isn't it important that people have such a strong reaction?  It signifies caring.  It's something that should be addressed, not glossed over.
