Letter: Tasteless Story

Share this article:
I found your Sept. 3 article on Paul Morgan ("Man Plans to Webcast Amputation") utterly tasteless and totally unbecoming a publisher of your stature.


What in God's name were you thinking to allow a publicist to talk you into running a story about a stunt like this -- with a picture no less? I realize yours is a tabloid publication, but does that really mean you have to stoop to tabloid journalism?
