The meanest lady dead

Mrs . dubose was purnounced dead.. But before her exspected death she was able to break her morphine habit...Mrs. Dubose died of cancer in her home. Atticus Finche's son read to her for her last two months, to disract her from her pain.. and her withdrawl symptoms to the morphine..Though Mrs. Henry Lafayette Dubose was known by the meanest woman who ever lived (according to Jem and Scout Finche) she left a Camellia flower for Jem. Though Mrs. Dubose was a very oppinated woman to say the least,.. she will be remmebered.


By now, all of Maycomb knows Atticus Finch has defended local negro, Tom Robinson. Luckily, the maycomb tribune was there for the trial. When i witnessed Mayella Ewell's speach i thought that she was lying through her teeth. Her evidence was not reliable. She claimed that Robinson choked her, but it didnt make sense cause' he can't use both of his hand. If her black eye was on the right side, it means her attacker was left handed. And guess who's left handed.? Bob Ewell himself. We all know this case wasn't rape, it was domestic abuse. Bob Ewell beat his daughter for trying to get with a black man. Everyone knew Tom Robinson wasn't guilty, they just convicted him since he was a negro. If it would have been a white man, people would see how many lies were told in the courtroom.
