The Right Thing

This week's objet d'eBay, a dollhouse-sized To Kill a Mockingbird, is (in full size) Harper Lee's paean to her father, Amassa Lee.

The fictional Amassa, Atticus Finch, is single father of two (and guiding spirit to Dill ... the fictionalized Truman Capote) who serves as a role model for the town as someone who always knows the right thing to do. A sensibility unfortunately lacking in, among others, the Sprint company who wouldn't cancel the contract of a dead dad.

** The daddytrick is taking the right thing to do from thought to action. **
