Show Some Respect

When you placed "Third Street Moses" in the paper, did you take into consideration:

* The individual's history and who he is.

* The fact that he did not consent to his photo being taken.

For those of us who are familiar with this individual, it is disappointing that the Source would lower itself to mocking.


It was Good Friday and the Source mocked his dress. This is not respectful to an individual or his beliefs.

People read and respect your paper, so give them reason to, instead of acting like children.

Disappointed Reader

Editor's note: Newspapers are under no obligation to obtain consent from a photo subject before publishing a picture taken in a public place. In the words of Sgt. Hulka, 'Lighten up,' Disapppointed.
