Nelle Harper Lee, the author of "To Kill a Mockingbird," passed today at age 89. Of all of the books which I have had the pleasure of reading that one gave me the most, and provoked the most thought during and long, long afterward.
Been a long time since I read that book, but I think it might be time to re-read it. She was truly a gifted author. There will never be another like her.
