No connection what so ever?

US court overturns DC handgun ban

“Since 1976, the private possession of handguns had been prohibited in the nation’s capital, while rifles and shotguns had been required to be locked away or dismantled.

The DC city council argued that the ban was needed to help keep violence and murder rates down.

But the measure was challenged by a security guard, Dick Heller.

He argued that if he was allowed to have a handgun at work, he also had a constitutional right to have one at home.”

Love the logic of this man’s reasoning. “If I’m allowed to do it at work, I can bloody well do it at home!”- kind of attitude! So humorous and yet so sad…

US factory worker in gun rampage

“A man who opened fire on colleagues at a plastics factory in Kentucky warned his girlfriend two hours before that he would kill his boss, police said.”

No need to comment on this particular event except that this too is very sad…

Florida lawmakers pass “take your guns to work” law

“The second thing they wrote about in that constitution was the right to bear arms,” said Sen. Durell Peaden, a Republican from Crestview, Florida. “It was what was dear in their hearts.”

Here’s another great thinker of our times! But of course Senator, what was dear in their hearts was GUNS! Nothing more important than guns…

Update:

I also recommend reading the comments on Justin Webb’s blog, in response to his post on the above DC ruling:

Reading the BBC news site today I came across this funny little passage:

Reebok, which is owned by Adidas and is outfitting 250 Games participants, has decided against making its athletes available for press conferences or one-on-one interviews during the event.

Instead, it plans to use a video news service to interview athletes and distribute content to media organisations.

“As a brand, we didn’t want to put our athletes in the position when being interviewed or having to explain their personal views on the human rights issue, and we also didn’t want to act as a censor either,” explains Josie Stevens, Reebok director of global public relations.

How is this not being a censor? I’m perplexed…

最近のブログは全部英語かスウェーデン語ばっかりになっています。なぜかと言うと、最近のポストの内容は技術的な話か、なぜか英語で書きやすいポストがいっぱい。

本当はもっと日本語を使ってポストを書くつもりがあったはずが、日本語で書いてしまうとスウェーデンの友人とか、家族とかは全然読めなくて、寂しいかなぁぁっと思って大体皆が読めるの英語になっています。

ところで、この間日本の母校になった「KAI日本語スクール」を訪ねました。

そこでいっぱいお世話になった先生の方々とお話した時に、「そう言えば、あなたはずっとブログやっていたよね!」と言われました。「うん。」と答えた私は、最近の英語の優先で悲しんでいる人の存在が分かりました。

学校の皆様はもちろん英語は読めますが、頑張って教えてくれた日本語を使わずのは残念ですよね。しかもせっかくの練習の機会を失うのも勿体無いです。なので、これからうも少し「日本語をちゃんと使って、日記書きましょう!」っと決めました。

宜しくね。
