The UK's Guardian & The Amish School Shooting in PA.

The British were back in the Mohawk Valley yesterday, not getting their butts beat as they did when they were here two centuries ago, but reading my post, Amish Paradise Lost: An Open Letter To President Bush. The Guardian, once known as the Manchester Guardian and winner of the British Press Awards National Newspaper of the Year 2006, reprinted part of my post in a Newsblog post, Shots Through A Community’s Heart, written by James Sturcke.


Jim Wild, convenor of the Men's Studies Unit at Nottingham Trent University, wrote in yesterday‘s Guardian that the Amish school shooting had something to do with our failure to debate masculinity. I don‘t agree with Mr. Wild, but his article is worth reading.

In any event, The Amish school shooting was The Guardian’s number two story of the day yesterday, and it was intriguing to see how the Brits view and interpret news stories about the United States.
