Did anyone notice, or care, about the connection in the Boo Radley and Perry Smith post?
Boo Radley was a character in To Kill a Mockingbird written by Harper Lee.
Perry Smith was one of the murderer's in Truman Capote's book In Cold Blood.
Harper Lee and Truman Capote were childhood friends back in Mississippi, or Alabama, or whatever the fook southern state they were childhood friends in, and ....
and this is the kicker
The character of Dill, the little four eyed geek who was visiting relatives for the summer and became Scout and Jem's friend, in To Kill a Mockingbird was based on ..... Truman Capote!!
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury,
I rest my case.
