Despite the advances of mankingd, many of the people live much as they always have. They farm crops, raise animals such as the llama which is used for its wool as well as its meat.

I am quite offended by your choice of words concerning my work. Firstly, I was not “just standing around and taking a photo while President Reagan was being shot” as you say in your blog. I worked for United Press International and was covering the President that day, which included being in his protective cover pool. Second, the picture was a Nominated Finalist in the Pulitzer awards that year. Third, I seriously doubt that you have neither asked for nor paid Corbis/Bettman for the use of this picture, violating their copyright. Get a little serious.

 Don Rypka won a Pulitzer in 1982 for just standing around and taking a photo while President Reagan was being shot. We guess Onion photographer Hal Nielsen shouldn’t have tackled would-be-assassin John Hinckley, Jr. and should have focused on getting a better angle instead.
