    why I have always hated that picture of Mary Vecchio standing over Jeff's lifeless body. While that is most certainly a very powerful image -- and almost certainly why the event had such an impact on the American psyche -- it doesn't tell us anything about what really happened. For all you know looking at that picture, he could have committed suicide. I much prefer the pictures of the guardsmen shooting or even the really horrific pictures of Jeff showing the true extent of his injuries. (Sorry, I don't seem to be able to find one of those at the moment ... but, then again, I doubt you'd really want to see it.)
