THE GLOBE, TOO. I
confess that I hadn't noticed the Globe's photo of a dying
Victoria Snelgrove until I read the comments
to my earlier item. I had seen the photo, and had noticed the
dreadlocked young man in the foreground. But Snelgrove's sprawled
body eluded my not-so-keen eye the first time around. No excuse - all
I had to do was read the caption.
It's black-and-white, it's small,
and it's not nearly as graphic as either of the two photos that the
Herald published. It's also not on the front page. But I
wouldn't have run it, and I don't think the Globe should have.
