Photo: Mockingbird

This photo makes me happy.  It seems to confirm that Gregory Peck was Atticus Finch.
Not only is To Kill A Mockingbird one of my favorite books, I've loved the film long before I discovered it was a book.  In fact, as I'm typing I can remember sixth grade Trevor taking home one of those Scholastic book order forms that teachers are always passing out.  "Hey dad, that movie we watched, it's also a book."  We had just moved to Germany, and I had just started in a new school, and had not yet made any new friends.  Harper Lee was one of my best friends in sixth grade.
Which also reminds me that the first quarter of sixth grade is the only time I ever got straight A's.
