To The Editor:
A couple of comments about photographs printed in last week's paper.
Eleven people for eleven days on a humanitarian trip to Honduras probably produced a few hundred photos. Why did someone choose to have 3 out of 15 printed, depicting young women of Warren with automatic weapons? They weren't sporting guns or single shot rifles but guns that are designed to kill people. Sure there can be quite a thrill in firing such weapons, but with the way the world is today, why glamorize it?
Secondly, on a lighter note, I refer to the Harwood 2008 Prom picture. Gentlemen! What happened to your jackets? (Could have saved $s by renting only the trousers.) And since when do we wear sunglasses and hats indoors at a ball, or go tie-less in evening dress, or wear colored shirts, or leave waistcoats (vests) undone? I know the answer -- it's just that times have changed and I'm showing my age. The ladies, on the other hand, all looked fabulous!
Thank you for a great local newspaper.
P.S.: The photos accompanying Lyndon Virkler's excellent article on fiddleheads are not of fiddleheads. M.W.
Editor's Note: Point taken on photos of young women with guns.
