Use common sense

At least bloggers and journalists, as well as the papers they work for, should consider the ramifications to family members and to soem of the public when considering to publish anything offensive. The Boston Herald ran an apology in Friday's edition because they ran pictures of the dead Boston Red Sox fan who was accidentally killed by a projectile from a policeperson's gun. It's bad enough the tragedy happened, but to see a bloodied 20-something woman laying in the street is something no one should have to wake up to....especially the woman's parents. We have to use "good judgement" when putting things out on the Internet, paper or television for people to read or view.
