1) What's the article about? Summarize it. 2) How does the story connect to our journalism class and journalism as a profession in general? 3) What questions does the story leave you with after reading it? List at least two.

1. lifting the ban on photo's of caskets or other means of death after wartime.
2. It relates to Journalism because the world needs to see the true effect and the visual side of whats really happening during wartime. not to say it shouldnt be kept under complete control of the dearly loved one's parents or guardians to decide whether or not they should be documented and photographed.
3. Why was the ban placed there in the first place? why couldnt the system work it out before?

Faribault Daily News

i think its kinda screwed up the way the children took their shot at the teacher after the fact. Even though she may have had some issues, but i think it was a good idea that it wasnt published in the school news paper, save the controversey and the humiliation of the teacher, or it could backfire back at the students, so ya never know.

Starbucks Article!

I love Starbucks, even dthough the prices will make the veins explode inside your forehead, the enviorment around you, and the people who make it up is what counts. like the article, yeah the coffee may taste phenomonal, it wouldnt be the same with the greetings and homley feeling of the lounge itself.
