To Kill a Squawkingbird? Famous author Harper Lee is a Mets fan

I was reading Smithsonian Magazine last night - yes, I actually occasionally read something other than the sports pages! And I was a little stunned to read, in an article about the 50th anniversary of "To Kill a Mockingbird," that Harper Lee, the book's author, is a Mets fan!

The article said that:

During the summer, when she would migrate to New York City, she would go to museums and the theater and root for the Mets, the natural choice for someone with an underdog thing as big as the Ritz.
Anyhow, this got me thinking. Maybe the Mets should do some sort of tribute to Miss Lee, to mark the 50th anniversary of the book. Instead just booing, fans should be encouraged to yell "Boo...Radley!"

What say you, Squawker Jon? And please, stop banging your head against the wall!

What do you think? Tell us about it!
