"Dorothy the witch who wasn't", that's fascinating.  She was very witchy in some ways.  You could almost see the whole adventure as a sort of shamanic journey.  (Yes I know it was actually political commentary.)
If you look at it one way, the story could describes a young natural witch who has yet to discover witchcraft really exists.  They bumble around disturbing energies, accidentally doing magickal acts, messing them up, but end up doing powerful things and changing people's lives.  Of course witches aren't the only ones who do this, but it seems to be the cliche that all witches I've met go through before they truly discover the craft.  Like making your stereo/tv/computer come on or turn off from accross the room.  How about watches breaking or stopping.  I've heard a few accounts on this forum alone about those who can't wear watches because they always mysteriously break or stop.  This happens to me, I just gave up, and don't wear one.

When I was not even a teen, I was listening at the wall when I heard my parents yelling.  I had heard them yell before, but this was particularly bothersome.  I kept saying to myself I don't wanna hear this.  And I went deaf in my left ear, the one that was against the wall.  The doctor thought it was wax, they did something to my ear, and that wasn't it.  It cleared up after a few days. 

My close friend who is also a witch and I , used to make the lights flicker/turn on and off.  One day, another friend and I were sitting at a bench on a path.  She was telling me how it was creepy that I could do that.  I was getting so frustrated by others making fun of us.  I became so adamant that it wasn't true, that I stood up, yelling, and outstretched my arms, and at that moment, all the pathway lights came on, starting at me, and then one at a time, all the way to the end.  At that point I stopped arguing with people and embraced it.
My dad told me it was because my energy was all over the road, and that like electricity, it needs to be grounded or directed.

So Dorothy accidentally kills someone, much worse than what happened to me.  But she also saved munchkins, which is very cool.
