2. Scout Willis, the middle daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, was named for

Mary Badham's character in that movie.

As long as we're talking pop culture trivia (which my husband and I can do for hours)!

Fantastic book, fantastic movie. Good to see Scout still has her twinkly eyes.

4. Things haven't changed all that much, huh?

Troy Davis, Kenneth Chamberlain, Oscar Grant, Trayvon Martin, and on and on and on.

Love that movie like nothing else.
