You're all probably pretty tired of this numbing Virginia Tech massacre story. If one more Italian asks me to explain America's obsessive gun culture, I too may go numb, or blue. But I do want to point out a sweet article one of my students wrote for the JCU student newspaper about the ripple effects here in Rome. It got picked up by AOL and was referenced on Facebook, teaching her and her classmates a nice lesson in the power of publishing. Bravissima!
