Harper Lee vs. Hanover County School Board

If you ever have the desire to use the written word to put someone in his place, you can derive inspiration from a letter that Harper Lee (pictured) wrote to the school board in Hanover County, Virginia. The board had removed all copies of To Kill a Mockingbird from school libraries. She told the board where to go.

The Takeaway: In this time of politically correct hypersensitivity, effeteness and non-judgmentalism, we are forgetting how to speak our minds. To prevent forgetting, keep reading good writers.
