LETTERS TO THE EDITOR - Photo of car accident inappropriate


What has happened to professional journalism?

The Union-Bulletin owes the family and loved ones of Frances Hansen a huge apology. This is in regards to the photo on the front page Sept. 15.

Since when do we flaunt someone's extreme distress by actually showing their face as they are trapped in a rolled over car? How would you feel if that was your mother, grandmother, friend or neighbor? Remember, this paper is easily accessible to children, both in homes and schools. Is this appropriate?

Come on people. Please use your head before you publish.
