This is sort of remarkable. Back in 2005, Harper Lee, who famously wrote To Kill a Mockingbird, (and is from, of course, Alabama), wrote a letter criticizing Roy Moore. Not about people who are “like” Roy Moore...but, no, about Roy Moore specifically.
In the letter to a historian friend, she wrote --
"It looks like to hell if we don't get some things changed. . . . I dread the advent of Roy Moore's administration but its coming sure as doomsday. What is wrong with us? Are you old enough to remember when people were less ignorant? I am."
You can read an article on the story behind it, written by that historian, here.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
