    Don't like it, don't hate it, don't particularly care much about the cover. Can't even begin to fathom why I should be offended.

    Re: Rolling stone cover

    I'm not offended, but I don't like it when the media publicizes killers. There is evidence that some killers and terrorists do it for the publicity. I don't think that killer's names or faces should be included in national/regional news stories unless they were famous before the crime. It is only relevant to the people in the immediate community, so it may be appropriate to mention the killer's name in the local media, but not beyond that community. I would not legislate this, it should just be standard journalistic practice to leave out their name and picture, as they already do with minors involved with crimes.

    It bothers me that (for example) I know know the name of the guy who John Lennon. The newspapers should just refer to him as "the A-hole shot John Lennon."

    Yes you are right,so what is your point?
    A good father wouldn't bring trash into his own home for his kids to be exposed to it.
    A good father is supposed to teach their children not to play with trash themselves.
    A good father is supposed to teach their children to dispose of their own trash.
    A good father is supposed to instill values into their children so that they do not become trash themselves.
    It is not my job to clean up everyone else's trash.
    I'm a chef,not a garbageman.Me and my wife has always ran a "clean" household for our children.
    How other people raise their kids is none of my concern,as long as those little monsters they are raising do not hurt my own children.Then it becomes my concern.

    A good father is not only supposed to protect his children from the trash in the world,but to teach them how to deal with it themselves when they become of age.

    It was because both me and my wife were too busy trying to raise our children to be productive and prosperous citizens to be concerned about who is on the cover of a magazine that our daughters are where they are at now.
    My eldest daughter was too busy trying to get good grades, going to law school,passing the bar exam,landing a job at a large investment firm,striving to get promotions,meeting the man she loves,marrying him,buying a house,having a set of twins and raising my grandchildren themselves to worry about who is on the cover of Rolling Stone.
    My middle daughter was to busy trying to get good grades,going to college to learn business management,going to culinary school to learn how to be a chef (just like her father),meeting the man she loves,marrying him,becoming the head chef of a nice fancy restaurant,buying a house,and her and her husband saving enough money to open up their own restaurant to worry about who is on the cover of Rolling Stone.
    My youngest daughter was too busy getting good grades,getting to college,passing pre-med,going to a damn good medical college,and trying to graduate it to worry about who is on the cover of Rolling Stone.

    Me and my wife have taught our daughters to follow their dreams,keep their eyes on the prize,and not let themselves be distracted by such trivial bull**** like who is on the cover of Rolling Stone.
    That is why we Verthaine's are a prosperous and wealthy family.
    We let others worry about the trash in the world.We are too busy trying to rise above the trash.

    So you're one of those rather odd parents that thinks hiding reality from their kids is a good thing?

    I stopped buying RollingStone when they did the Manson cover, haven't purchased an issue since. Hopefully enough folks will feel the same way about this cover and do the same.

    Bottom line is the guy is a chicken chit terrorist murderer. I don't care if he's pretty, a retard or brain dead. Nor do I care how and why he got that way.

    So, RS, do the right thing and make it disappear.
