Please, no pictures of commodes, FLS

I will make this quick. Why would a good newspaper like The Free Lance-Star put a photo of a commode on the front page of its Life section ["Phone flushed out of hiding at office," Aug. 9]?

That is not what people want to see when they read their morning paper. The story, too, was lame. Please, Edie Gross, please find more substantial subjects to write about. Or at least do not have offensive bathroom pictures attached to your column.

Being descriptive in the article was enough. Give your readers the intellectual credit to imagine what you are writing about, without the picture.
