American Author Harper Lee, Whose Novel Changed Lives, Dies at 89

Deirdre Fulton, staff writer

Influential author Nelle Harper Lee, whose novel To Kill A Mockingbird won the Pulitzer Prize in 1961, has died at the age of 89.

A relative said Lee died in her sleep at the Meadows, an assisted living facility in Monroeville, Alabama—the same town in which she was born in 1926.

The best statement Harper Lee could have made in her later years would have been to snub "shrub" Bush on the Presidential Freedom Medal, then give countless reasons why this little piss ant of A President was not worthy or deserving of her honors or company....

This sucks. Another beautiful mind gone. And I have to fully agree witht the author of the article, it trully is an introduction to the American Criminal Justice system. But it is called the 'Criminal' justice sytem because the criminals are running it. Why not the United States justice system or the American justice system...if you dont get this, then you will never understand the trully deepest meaning of 'To Kill A Mockingbird'. RIP
