Dave Cullen- “Columbine”

14Apr09

columbine-cover-3d-white1234030730Salon has a fascinating interview with Dave Cullen, a former writer for, well, Salon, and the author of the newly released book Columbine, which debunks some of the myths that permeated the aftermath of the massacre.  Chief among these is the myth of Harris and Klebold targeting Cassie Bernall because she admitted to being Christian, a story that played so well with the media that it led to Bernall’s mother publishing a best-selling memoir, She Said Yes.  Props to Cullen for tapdancing delicately around this sensitive issue to show some of the misconceptions the media perpetuated for so many years.  Columbine is definitely going on my list of books to read this summer.
