"It's a sin to kill a mockingbird"
I am, at the moment, incredulous.
When I was a kid, I read "To Kill A Mockingbird."
I think it was on of the best novels ever written and it impacted me so much that I've re-read it several times since then. As I got older, my mother and I watched the movie, and it became a "thing" we did together once every couple of years.
The book was divine, the movie was like sweet molasses on a summer day in Tennessee.
It was real and honest and just plain awesome.
Now, a petition has been filed in Williamson County is wanting it banned from the school system.
I have no words for this.
The Tennessean has it front page
today with a copy of the petition.
Last time I checked the poll the paper was running, the consensus was to keep eighth-graders reading it by a pretty high margin.
That gives me a little hope.
