Thanks Kent, thanks Skip.
Wikiquote is nice. I missed it because I googled for Mark Twain and parts of
the Churchill quote -- for that I'm now convinced it is as wikiquote gives
a slightly longer excerpt and the date and location of the speech (November
11, 1947, in the House of Commons).
The closest Mark Twain quote I found is
"We are stopping at Shepherd's Hotel, which is the worst on earth except the
one I stopped at once in a small town in the United States."
Not very close, though, and the ones on wikiquote are better, too.
