Yeah, but you know it's not the one that I had in mind.
He's got a new one out now, I don't even know what it's about
But I'll see him in anything so I'll stand in line."
--Bob Dylan, "Brownsville Girl"
I was thinking last week about the AFI top heroes and villains list, and how right it was that Indiana Jones was number two and Atticus Finch was number one. Why those numbers? Because what it comes down to is: Most of us have accepted that we'll never be Indiana Jones. But we all want to believe that, given the chance, we could be Atticus Finch.
Rest in peace, Mr. Peck. And thank you.
