Today, for the first time, I picked up the

Daily News

, looked at the front cover, and put the paper down in disbelief WITHOUT buying it.

I don't need to tell you that the cover of the sad individual who killed all those Virginia Tech people pointing a gun at me was indeed the most outrageous, self-serving, greedy, deplorable and downright wrong cover you could ever come up with.

You are just as much to blame as this kid who killed these people because by putting this on the cover, you sensationalize murder and violence and make it seem like it's a joke just to sell more papers. Are things that bad over there?

Maybe your staff should look in the mirror and ask yourself what role you play in this society's downward spiral. You are well out in front.
