That's great to hear! Because I was thinking of doing a photo-reportage about one of your prisons. It's in an obscure little place called Guantanamo Bay. Do you think I just turn up with my camera, or is it politer to ring them beforehand?

Amarcan reporters are not havening a lot of problems covering things there all it takes is some pashens and $$$$$ you go to the proper chanasl and get the properer permition and off you go. all the info for the most part (and yes there is some top secret stuff they will not tell you like ANY government would) the info is out there ie... the bills that approve the funding from congress, and other resources that are available you just have to look . and if there are things that are not there as a US citcin one can file a FED FOIA request (Freedom Of Information Act) . But the thing is your not a US citcin so it may be harder and if you do not work for some one like the BBC it might be hard also.

now i do not fill out a lot of Fed FOIA requestes my self but i do make a good number of VA FOIA reqestes because there more relvent to me than the Fed ones are .

When you have the arrogance to correct the written English of another person at least have the courtesy to ensure that your own accuracy is up to snuff.


Quote:discusing
is spelled "discu ss ing" and
Quote:Virgina
"Virgin i a".

"as any fule kno" (in the words of Nigel Molesworth )

All in the interests of accuracy of course...

Perhaps you might like to consider that there are reasons, other than poor education or laziness, for inaccurate grammar and spelling?
