Gotta Watch: Twain's latest book, diamond covered skull

Business booming for Twain publisher - Meet the printers of the Mark Twain's latest book. That's right, the master storyteller has done it again and the publishers of the book seem to be a bit overwhelmed. The small Detroit publisher started with a modest request for 2000 books that eventually exploded to a request for more than 300,000 copies. Twain requested that his autobiography be published a century after his death fearing that it might be too offensive for his time.

Diamond skull finally on display –– It's creator calls it super-bling. This diamond covered human skull is the most expensive piece of art by a living artist, and perhaps one of the strangest as well. Florence is hosting this bizarre but beautiful work for the next five months for all you art aficionados.
