Tagged by a fellow blogger

Without getting into a definition of memes, the idea that thoughts can spread like viruses throughout the world is apparently making headway through the blogosphere and it has reached The Turner Report, thanks to Ron Davis, my friend at Chatter.
This blog and three others have been "tagged" by Mr. Davis to participate in one of those surveys that we always are receiving through our e-mail.
So here are my responses. You can check out Ron's at Chatter, and I will be thinking about what fine blogger friends can be tagged to continue this thoroughly scientific undertaking:

Few people remember The Last Hurrah. A lost classic. Yout other top-three movies ain't bad either.

Anyone who has read "To Kill a Mockingbird" is literate.

Good job, RT.

Is that the criterion for literacy now--being able to get through "To Kill a Mockingbird?"
