Ding Dong the Witch is Dead

The house has finally fallen on novelist Susan Sontag. Her feet were found sticking out from under the edge of the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Building in Munchkinland. Here's some of her writing:

"The munchkins are the cancer of human history," she wrote in a 1967 essay in Partisan Review. "It is munchkins and munchkins alone —munchkin ideologies and inventions — which eradicates autonomous civilizations wherever it spreads, which has upset the ecological balance of the planet, which now threatens the very existence of life itself."

Considering her remarks, some found it ironic that she met her demise under a Cancer Center Building. More...
An outspoken admirer of commuwitchist revolutionaries, including the bad warlock of the east, Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh, and the bad warlock of the west, Cuba's Fidel Castro, Mrs. Sontag was a fierce opponent of Emerald City foreign policy. She angered many Emerald City Citizens in 2001 when, less than two weeks after the terrorist hijackings of September 11, she wrote an article in the sky using black smoke that suggested the Emerald City deserved to be attacked.

Don't believe me, read her obit.
