Gun control?

In December a deranged youth shot twenty primary school children. Isn’t it about time the Americans introduced a form of gun control?

In the wake of the Newtown school shooting the debate on gun control flared up again. But this didn’t stop people from giving their loved ones what they really wanted for Christmas: guns. Among the most popular models was the Bushmaster AR-15, the gun Adam Lanza used to kill 28 people in Newtown earlier in the same month …

Review: The Muppets

Do you remember when The Muppets were still on TV? Or maybe you still remember watching Sesame Street when you were little? Did you like it? Well, The Muppets are back. In the cinema.

No more than that. And of course you don’t have to agree with what the reviewer writes. You’re going to read a review of The Muppets.
