Just Say Know

In what person's mind did it seem like a good idea to have middle-school children read a book that describes Truman Capote's nipples? (No, wait, they're Jem's, not Dill's. Still...! Or am I being neo-Victorian again?)

It's no surprise you end up with book reports like the one linked to above. Or rumors about who really wrote the book.

I didn't care to know he had them, or what they looked like. Or read such things. Oh, well.

They could be entirely fictional nipples, after all, it's only a story.
