The most decent of the kids from my seventh grade class grew up with Atticus Finch their moral lodestar. Rightly so.
Me? Boo Radley. Of course it has taken me a very long time to realize it.
My two friends who pointed out to me my social awkwardness did me a favor. A big favor.
Seems to me that Harper Lee painted Atticus and Boo with the same brush. Most of us aspire to kindness and decency.
Gregory Peck can't play all the roles.
