Letters to the Editor 

Okay guys, very scary photo on this week's front cover. Do you realize how many of your newspaper dispensers and racks are at exactly toddler- and child- eye level, and that, being all over town, at library entrances, on the street, near bus stops, parking lots, cafes, etc., they are verrrry accessible to children's viewing? My child has had nightmares since Thursday because I did not know I needed to run and shield the Coast dispenser from her dear little eyes before she happened to gaze at that monster and become instilled with great fear, notwithstanding my "but it's probably a nice monster" explanation. I saw a guy outside a cafe the next day stuck to the self-same dispenser, trying to hide the picture from his child while they waited in the street. It may be a cool or interesting image and be pertinent to your feature but was a bit heavy for the front cover... In fact it actually scared the shite out of me too.
