Bowling in Columbine also argues that the media vastly overemphasized the importance of school shootings, which is curious as it is a whole movie about school shootings. (Spinsanity actually did a pretty thorough dissection of this film.) I thought by far the strongest part of the movie was the whole thing about the welfare to work program. Sad. Just another thing to thank Bill Clinton for (that, and a Republican Congress - I'll be posting more on this later).

As far as I'm concerned, Howard Dean was/is right about guns - it's a local issue. Guns in Harlem and guns in rural Alabama (or Vermont) are very, very different - and I think people who don't hunt underestimate how important hunting is as a bonding experience for some people.
