INTERESTING: Discrepancies in the accounts of Rachel Corrie's death. I keep thinking about what Anthony Swofford said about her:

The possibility that an action might be ineffective has never stopped Americans, thank maman for that. Among other things, the protesters are also protesting against the ineffective nature of their footfalls and signs. This desire to hit the street when you know your voice will not budge the mountain is famously and gloriously AMERICAN. I think of the young American woman who died in Israel last week, putting her body between a Palestinian shack and an Israeli bulldozer. What madness! What shrill crazy hope!
