Edict On Rachel Corrie

Bravo Romeo Delta

I have, by the power vested in me by Pixy Misa, have decided that any wisecracks or smartass remarks about people buying the farm, particularly Americans - regardless of how confused they are - will result in the editing and/or deletion of the comment in question.

If I'm not going to tolerate Kos shooting his damnfool mouth off, then I see no reason to tolerate similar comments from the other side of the gallery - particularly with respect to the late Rachel Corrie.

Bad taste and rude behavior is bad taste and rude behavior, regardless from which direction on the compass it arrives from.

Amen. Rachel Corrie could have been my sister. She wasn't some terrorist blowing herself up to take others with her, she died from the awful mistake of thinking that the bulldozer operator could see her peacefully protesting.

I began writing a song parody of Simon & Garfunkel's "Richard Cory" in time for the anniversary of her death. Even though I made sure to treat her with respect and it was about ideas, not personalities, it still felt like I was making light of her tragic death and I never finished it.
We can disagree with her all we like but let's not call her "Rachel Pancake" fercryinoutloud.
