The following is an excerpt from a Gulf News article, dated March 5, 2009. Kipp’s comments are in italics:

“An American journalist working for an English daily from Abu Dhabi [no guesses] has run over an Egyptian security guard at the entrance of a university [in Ras Al Khaimah] because the guard denied him access to the campus.”

We understand the frustrations of a journalist; especially in trying to access the innumerable restricted zones in the country, and trying to contact the innumerable people we need to speak to in order to get the required permissions.

But did “J”, the American journalist, go over the top? Stress management perhaps?
