As I was googling, looking for information for the preceding article, I discovered that somebody has created a wikipedia The Skies Are Weeping, entry about my 2003-2004 work about Rachel Corrie, the young American human rights activist, who was killed in the Gaza Strip in March, 2003, just days before the beginning of the invasion of Iraq.
I didn't have anything to do with the article, and don't have a clue who wrote it.
The entry seems to have a neutral tone, has a thorough bibliography, and was created very recently - on January 27th. It has some inaccuracies, but they don't mar the essence of the entry. It is incomplete, as it doesn't link to material available on the web, like my recording of the November 2005 London performance of the work, my 2004 essay defending the premise of The Skies are Weeping, and Rep. Bob Lynn's denunciation of the work in front of a joint session of the Alaska Legislature.
I've watched wikipedia from its birth, as it has grown and undergone incredible stresses. I don't have a wikipedia entry of my own, but am mentioned in a few articles on other subjects. I decided a while back that I didn't want to write my own wikipedia article, so I'm tempted to keep out of the The Skies are Weeping article too.
I'm curious to see if it gets troll crashed like most wikipedia articles which treat people who treat Palestinians as human beings get trashed.
