    I have no idea. I was still swimming around in my old man's satchel for most of the 70's.

    Why are we all sitting here overanalyzing a goddamn picture? It's a picture. Rolling Stone is a magazine that wants to get high sales, so of course they are going to do something like this. At the end of the day, you'll be angry for about two seconds and then forget about it by the time early August rolls around.

    its not really overanalyzing its pretty clear in the picture that its disrespectful to the victims of the Boston bombings and that is why people are reacting to it. I personally am not angry about this more just sad that a respected magazine would go to such lengths to make more money.

    Seriously? You're actually legitimately surprised? In a world where more and more people are getting their information online and less and less people are subscribing to magazines and newspapers, you are surprised that they would do this?

    am I suprised that an American magazine company would exploit a terrorist attack in order to boost sales? Yes, especially when you consider how long it took America to recover mentally from 9/11.

    This cover is more offensive.

    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    pretty disgraceful front cover in my opinion which glorifies Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, nothng like exploiting a tradegy isnt that right rolling stone?
    I strongly disagree. First of all, the actual article explains how a kid who loved America at one time was transformed by a hate group into becoming the monster that he is.

    As for the cover photo? It's pretty accurate. It shows that a monster could be the all American kid next door who was sucked into radicalism. Could be your or my next door neighbor, for all we know.

    Why not the government exploits terrorist attacks to limit our freedoms and infringe upon our rights to grow their power. Where is the outrage over that?

    Rolling Stones and the Boston Bomber cover.

    The real news here is that Rolling Stone still publishes a magazine. Who knew? And who buys it?

    I don't see how calling him a "monster" is glorifying him, but...
    Maybe not glorifying him, but was this really necessary? I don't think so. To sick people who would do something like this and want the publicity, it is glorification.
