Outgunning the law

Outgunning the law

Four people, included the company's owner, were killed about two weeks ago when a man opened fire at a Minneapolis workplace before turning the gun on himself. The fifth victim died later in one Minneapolis hospital. A couple of weeks earlier in August, a guy in a Batman dress entered a cinema near Denver to hunt down people waiting for the movie to start, and it has been five years so far, since a mad student massacred not less than 32 (mostly fellow students) at the Virginia Tech University before killing himself.

Inefficient democracy

 As most of my traveling fellows probably also noticed, congressmen, liberal journalists as well as university professors often complain about the polarization of the american society. (Not only in terms of political views, but also considering regional, religious and social differences, though let us here concentrate on the political divide.) We met a bunch of left-leaning  thinkers, who kept arguing that the GOP moved further to the right than ever before, particularly considering their views on social issues.

The World Press Institute offers a unique opportunity their fellows to get acquainted with the way the american media is functioning nowadays, and this, alongside others, was clearly one of the main purposes that lead me submit my application for this years fellowship program. Like most of my colleagues and probably everyone who dedicated his life to the sake of journalism, I"ve been following closely and with dubious attention the latest revolutionary developments of our profession.

Dance for eternity

As we, me alongside my host parents Tom and Lou, approach the Sioux Trail at Prior Lake, I'm getting more and more excited. This tiny hill is the location of the 2012 Wacipi, also called as 'Pow wow', the annual meeting of the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community near Minneapolis. Year by year, hundreds of native americans, from all over the country draw near this area to meet the local indian tribe community and to celebrate their culture and traditions.
