Also not an expert, but agree. Ironically Trump's intense eagerness to score a diplomatic win could lead him to a reasonable policy (accepting nuclear North Korea) that wouldn't have been possible under a more normal president.

My sense is they think that it's not something voters understand or care about, so better not to talk about. Not defending that position but that's the logic here.

I'm sure you're right in your account. The thing is the original book is very fragile & vulnerable in some ways but has a genuine value because it records Lee's complicated feelings about her dad. Take that away and you have nothing.

If it were oil company executives talking about how they need to continue to extract fossil fuel, she would have been much politer.

I like how "you shouldn't throw things at people" and "bosses shouldn't bully their employees" are now radical left wing positions. Those snowflake kids with their political correctness can't handle a few flying projectiles!
