“To Kill A Mockingbird” Is Under Attack

October 15, 2017

Earth to Biloxi–This is 2017!
To Kill a Mockingbird is being removed from a junior-high reading list in a Mississippi school district.  According to the Biloxi Sun Herald, school administrators pulled the classic novel from the 8th-grade curriculum because of complaints that some of the book’s language “makes people uncomfortable.”
Meanwhile on the playground it often sounds like sailors on leave.
And so it goes.
