Chad Lundquist/Nevada Appeal MacAvoy Lane, portraying Mark Twain, talks about the selection of "Morning in Nevada" as the design for the Nevada quarter Tuesday morning at the coin's launch ceremony.

“Over the years, I have witnessed live performances
by many of show business’ top comedians

and read the words of a great many excellent writers.
Never have the two abilities been combined
as well as they are in the case of McAvoy Layne.” 

-Reno public relations legend, Harry Spencer

Jackass Hill

He might be the most conceited ass in the territory, but at 180 he can golf his age…
