Not worthy of a Pulitzer
Whether you choose to publish my letter or not I felt a need to comment on the recent Milt Prigee cartoon depicting the Virginia Tech students.
Every day we are met with media run amuck. They shove their cameras in grief stricken victims faces and call it journalism. Milt Prigee with his social commentary gave us the newspapers version of the same mentality that brings us those horrific interviews on television.
Good journalism? I think not.
Pulitzer Prize nominee? I think not.
Vulgar sensationalism? I think.
A.G. Elliott (Letters, April 28), I sincerely pray that you never have to lose a child and that should you lose a child you never have to experience a Milt Prigee social commentary regarding that childs death.
