To Kill a Mockingbird

to kill a mockingbird Bought the Blue-Ray edition of To Kill a Mockingbird, and watched it with my gf last night.  There is nothing quite as much as the prose of Harper Lee to make you feel inferior as a writer.  It works on so many levels.  It helps that my gf is a school teacher, has taught it many times, and was able to point out all the nuances.  I was able to point out how most of the women in the neighborhood are living alone and are strong; rather progressive for the 1930’s.  Even Scout, a tomboy, fits right in on that street.  Love that book/ movie.
