    It's not that he's "sexy", or we are scared of how "sexy" he is.

    It's the simple assumption of many that being on the cover of the Rolling Stone (or other pubs)is a positive recognition, a mark of honor. We've been through this multiple times when our local paper (Dallas Morning News) named the Texan of the Year; even though they say over and over and over - the person(s) they choose have had an impact. For good or ill. Tsarnaev did a big thing, it had a big impact. The only reason to object to his image being on the cover of RS, or the front page of any other publication, is the assumption that it is a good thing to be there, and what he did was not a good thing, so he doesn't "deserve" the reward of being there.

    So, let's all stop and think about what images should be on the FP of Rolling Stone or other pubs - given that only those who "deserve" positive recognition should be there. And what iconic images of the past should not have graced covers because they failed to meet that standard.

    •  I guess there is just no validity in what I am (0+ / 0-)

      suggesting then.

      Because, obviously, what you are saying and what I am saying can't be true at the same time.
