Journalists and Guns   


As a reporter during the Boer War, Winston Churchill carried and used a gun. In both world wars, correspondents wore officers' uniforms and were armed. By the end of World War II, the American correspondents who appeared in Tokyo were similarly attired and accoutred.

I agree with those who say that the media should not be armed (Drop Cap, April/May). If one is armed, there's always the chance that one may kill or wound someone. Whether to have bodyguards is not such an easy question.

I went into Ian Smith's Southern Rhodesia in the mid-'60s with Joshua Nkomo's ZAPU guerrillas, to write an article for Foreign Affairs. The ZAPU unit commander asked me to carry a gun. I refused, so he gave me a young guerrilla with an AK-47 as a bodyguard.

In 1968, General Bonesteel authorized me to visit the misnamed "demilitarized zone" between South and North Korea but insisted that I carry a loaded weapon. When I protested, he said the young officer driving me couldn't be expected to protect both of us if we came under attack; so I agreed to carry a pistol.

When we reached the U.S. checkpoint at the entry to the zone, I copied that officer-driver in pulling out the chamber to show that my gun, like his, was fully loaded. As we drove on, I placed my gun beside him and said: "Have mine as well."

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
