To Kill a Mockingbird Makes Its Mark, 50 Years after Film’s Release — Daily Beast

Wonderful article about a great film. Even includes my favorite anecdote, which I read in Vanity Fair years ago:

The Pecks forged a close bond with [Harper Lee,] the reclusive author after a trip to her home in Monroeville, Ala., and her visit to the set. On the first day of shooting, with a tear in her eye, she took Peck aside and whispered, “You have a little pot belly, just like my daddy.” “Harper, that’s called great acting,” quipped Peck.

In Which I Fix My Girlfriend’s Grandparents’ WiFi and am Hailed as a Conquering Hero— McSweeneys

    I got to play the battle-hardened WiFi warrior at my daughter’s preschool late last year. (Also an issue of rebooting the router.) Still, it earned me happy feelings of competency + a $30 credit toward their next parent’s day out. WooHOO!

    I saw you from a distance in Assembly Inn dining hall during breakfast Friday but didn’t get a chance to speak to you and I have this weird quirk about yelling out across a room full of folks I don’t know as well. I did get a chance to see your other cohorts when I came into dining hall… Reggie, Jared, Kirby, Elizabeth…what a great group. Hope you are doing well and you’re getting some sabbath after all those papers
