...and what does America's gun control struggle has to do with this website? what link does this story have with Cameroon? Or is it that we lack news here in Cameroon to report? Please submit your article as a freelance writer to BBC.CO.UK and not to this website.

WordWeaver, perhaps it is because the Post is a newspaper and likes to increase its dimensions. Good essays by good writers and contributors increase readership and reputation worldwide.

WordWeaver,
Is it the policy of this site that inform is limited to a particular source? Or are you expressing your own narrow bias.

What a limited imagination. There are many people who either plan to visit, immigrate, or student in the USA. This is valuable information to help them in their decisions making process.

I happen to have read a few academic article published in journals by this author. I don`t think he lacks a place to submit his paper.

Go to
http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qa3821/is_200304/ai_n9173452/pg_1

You will find one of his articles. Take some time to read it. It is full with many of the socio-political problems we face today. It is a very good wrte-up about our problems. It is enlightening for those with intellectual curiosity.

Wordweaver,
The post needs to even include a column for foreign news like this one.I don't see any reason why we are only concerned about ourselves in Cameroon news.The Virginia Tech shooting was considered as the worst shooting by a single student in American history.It was reprted that the killer(a descendant from Korea)killed 32 students before committing suicide.Until the American congressmen are in a debate on amending the use of guns in by individuals.The shooting is not even comparable in the number of victims to that of Iowa as reported by Lyombe Eko above.

Yet all these news is little known to Cameroonians since very few people read newspapers nor can afford the hurdles of the internet.That notwithstanding I hope we can be happy if we are furnished with foreign events of this type.We are tired of reading about the SDF and CPDM so this can be a kind of release from our political traumatic stress and diversion of events and ideologies.

So M Nje, I think you are the one working on your own "narrow bias". I did not say that the author is bad writer, I simply said that the article had no use int his website. Did this particular article spark intellectual curiosity? what did he say in this article that hasn't been repeated more than 100 times on CNN? nothing actually. Furthermore,you guys are saying that the post should be reported international news. That's a wonderful idea, but have they been doing so? What about the soaring crisis in iraq? the Democratres vs. President Bush duel in America? the rise of Iran? The threat the west faces with Chevez's new policy in Venezuela? Global warming? the elections in France? Prince william going to Iraq? we all know the truth so don't even try to talk my "limited imagination" whne we know the post does not even report international stories. The only recent international story they have published lately is about the United states squadron coming to the coast of Cameroon. Is that what you call international news? They have not being reporting any concrete foreign news so what is the use publishing first drafts of writers who stay in foreign countries in a newspaper which is suppose to be the most investigate Anglopjone newspaper in Cameroon? Does first drafts of Cameroon's stories even make it to these foreign countries? I don't think so. So M NJE and your counterparts, before you talk about "narrow bias" and "limited imagination", you look past the surface and go straight into analyzing the point of the matter.
