Blogs » Your Advocate: an editor's blog » What do you see in this photo?


My previous post on Advocate phone calls was so popular I thought I'd share a letter we received Tuesday.

The letter concerns a "Your Photo" by a reader showing her adorable grandchildren. We published the photo last month on Page A2.

The reader saw the photo as an invitation to child molesters. That's certainly a serious concern, but we publish many pictures of children every week in your Advocate. We don't think the bad people in the world need to rely on a newspaper for their evil intentions. We also don't want to be so afraid we stop publishing the good all around us, particularly in our families and our schools.

We hope you'll share your photos, too, either by uploading directly to our website or emailing to If you choose to email your photos, please use the subject line for the title and place any caption information you have in the body of the message.
