They printed my letter!

Of course, they printed everyone else's, too. Second from bottom.

From the web site...

Inept -- or careful liars? This old conservative wouldn't pop a gasket at this photo on the local paper. As far as I'm concerned, the human body is just fine; we've all got one. Far from hiding my kids from the picture, I would draw their attention to it and use it as the basis for discussion of peaceful protest.

I'm not sure that the various comparisons to pornography are apt; I would say that those publications are covered because of the poses, not due to the mere presence of a nekkid body. There's certainly no prurient intent to this photo.

I was disappointed by your explanation of an inadvertent photo switch that no one caught; certainly it would be hard to make such an obvious mistake. I can't help but think that your editorial staff is more careful than that.

Actually, they changed my subject; as sent, it was 'Prudes!'. But I guess that's the perogative of the editor.

Yeah, I meant to post that yesterday, but I don't seem to have time to update my own LJ. Most excellent letter - I'm glad they printed it!
