What Should Have Been Rolling Stone's Cover

This is Jane Richard.  She had her leg blown off by the Tsarnaev brothers at the Boston Marathon.  The bomb, planted by the brothers, not only tore off Jane's leg, but it also killed her brother Martin who was standing near her.

Earlier this month, Rolling Stone put the lone surviving killer Dzhokhar Rsarnaev on their cover in a glory shot.  The magazine tried their damnedest to explain their rationale for doing so, but a cogent argument has yet to be made.

In the meantime, little Jane here was recovering from her injuries, and her 12 surgeries required to try and fix her.  

And here she stands - dead brother, missing leg - and with a smile that could melt polar ice.  

If there was ever a cover shot, for Rolling Stone or any other rag for that matter, it is this one.  Remarkable.

  1. AMEN!!! Sometimes I wonder what goes through people's heads...any cover would have been better than having that loser. They could have shown a war vet or a Christian doing good work, but no...let's glorify a murderer...the fall of society...sad.


Please feel free to include any thoughts you may have. Know, however, that kiddos might be reading this, so please keep the adult language to yourself. I know, for me to ask that language is clean is a stretch...
