Mr. Underwood writes a very blunt and harsh editorial about the death of Tom Robinson in the paper. He compares Tom to a songbird, and compares his death to "the senseless slaughter of songbirds." Harper Lee uses this editorial to continue to develop her theme of the mockingbird, once again concentrating on how it is a sin to kill something innocent.
