    CVS, Walgreens and now Rite-Aid. Usually don't go there because they're a little high, but I'm spending money at all three today.

    My concern about this issue ranks right up there with what color dress Michelle Obama is wearing.

    Rolling Stone is a private company and if they want to put something on the cover that might offend people that's their business. If I was making decisions for them I damned sure wouldn't do it but I don't even read that trash much less consult with them.

    It doesn't piss me off but I do think it is poor taste to put a terrorist on the cover a magazine that is normally used for musicians, actors, people involved in the acting and music industry,models and occasional political figures. If they want to write a article about a terrorist then fine, but don't put his photo on the cover of a magazine.The article inside the magazine is irrelevant when there is a photo of the terrorist on cover looking like a rock star or some other celebrity.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I wouldn't have put him on the cover, but I don't run the Rolling Stone magazine.

    No one is forced to buy the magazine, which certainly has the 1st Amendment right to put whoever and/or whatever they want on the cover or in the magazine.

    If we make this illegal, whats next?

    Since I haven't read the article I can't say what their intention is, but I believe in the saying don't judge a book by its cover.

    There's another saying, "a picture's worth a thousand words."

    Re: Rolling stone cover

    I dunno....a convicted rapist played a comic cameo in a popular film comedy (Hangover Part 2)...and nobody batted an eye.

    This piece was not the same sort of obvious endorsement of the man that the Tyson thing was.
