Your Opinion: Story placement disturbs reader

January 22nd, 2011 by Mary Patterson, Jefferson City in News

Dear Editor:

I am writing regarding the shooting in Tucson. It was a very bad incident which was uncalled for.

But what I am frustrated about is that the very same week one of our Missouri soldiers was killed in Afghanistan and the only mention was in the B section of our local paper.

Isn't this young man's life worth the front page? Shame on society.
