In an interview I read recently, Tom Waits said that one of the most powerful scenes he ever saw in a movie was when Scout said “Hey Mr. Cunningham” outside the jail cell in To Kill A Mockingbird.
I agree. Ol’ Scout really takes the wind out of the proverbial lynching sails when she brings it all home for the good ol’ boys ready to act on the lie of the local drunk.
If you haven’t read To Kill A Mockingbird lately, or seen the movie, go do it. It’s good for your soul.
