Darn bulldozers 

From the Wall Street Journal. I'll bet the people in Israel would be aghast at these people blaming Caterpillar for their daughter standing in front of a moving bulldozer. I like the message at the end.

The parents of Rachel Corrie, who died in a March 2003 bulldozer accident while she was trying to obstruct an Israeli military operation to destroy terrorist weapons-smuggling tunnels, "spoke Sunday at a rally to build support for two protests against Caterpillar this month in Chicago and Peoria," the Chicago Sun-Times reports:

Activists will protest the use of Caterpillar bulldozers to destroy Palestinian homes, at the company's annual stockholders meeting April 14 in Chicago. An "International Day of Action Against Caterpillar" demonstration will be staged April 23 at corporate headquarters in Peoria.

We guess blaming the bulldozer isn't as bad as blaming Israel, which after all is only trying to protect innocent people from mass-murdering terrorists. Maybe Caterpillar can respond by putting warning labels on its bulldozers: DO NOT STAND IN FRONT OF MOVING VEHICLES.
