A local high school’s drama department’s plan to stage a production of “To Kill a Mockingbird” appears to be a losing battle. They can’t keep the dialogue that uses the N-word on the off chance that it will incite an already hypersensitive community. They can’t change the dialogue because to do so could be a copyright infringement.

I would like to think that the adults in our community could recognize that the play’s dialogue is not meant to offend, but to open discussions about prejudice and hate. This could be a good thing. Believe me, it is the adults that are raising the objections, not the kids.
