Rolling Stone has a long tradition of fairly stellar long form journalism. It sounds like this article continues said tradition.

Also, the pic is a selfie. We've all taken one.

You know what? I think that was the exact last time I bought that rag too.

Although I read some other magazines during that period until the end of the decade. Since then, it's been all internet.

Not sure why the outrage over the cover. Like others have said, it demonstrates the many different faces that terrorism can take. I think that was the point behind the photo (a selfie, no less), although I'm sure they expected the sort of outrage and debate it generated.

The article itself is fantastic.

where was the outcry when the same photo was used by the new york times? they didn't photoshop a trendy band's shirt on him or something to make him look cooler. there's always articles like these. it's refreshing to see them write about something serious instead of another article about some overexposed musician.

But Rolling Stone is liberal.

Therefore they sympathize with terrorists.

U.S. to seek death penalty in Boston bombing case - The Washington Post

Quote:
The Justice Department announced Thursday that it would seek the death penalty against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 20-year-old man whom prosecutors have accused of bombing the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 200 others.

“The nature of the conduct at issue and the resultant harm compel this decision,” Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a short statement.
It only took 5 years but Eric Holder has finally made a sound decision.

OK FYM, explain to the families of those killed or the 16 survivors that had legs amputated why this monster deserves to live.

Because all the family members unanimously agree with the application of the death penalty? And the ones who don't, who cares about their views?

How can you argue against government making decisions like healthcare and death panels, yet ok with a literal death panel.

It's horrible what this person did. I am against the death penalty. I don't think it's right for the state to contradicting views when it comes to murder.

This man killed people, hurt others badly. I can see an emotional response would be to see him die.

I just don't see it as a moral response

That we show that killing is wrong by killing people?

You see the murder of innocents and the execution of said murderer as morally equivalent?
Do you consider "murder,"" kill," and "execute" to be synonymous?

I will say that my biggest problem with the death penalty is it's finality, and the fact that money gets you out of a death sentence. Also being white.

The normal death penalty objections do to apply as much in a case like this. I do agree.

However, I see nothing gained by an execution, and it seems shocking that people who advocate a "culture of life" become so bloodthirsty at the drop of a hat.
