I was disappointed that the AJC choose to create and use the 'photograph' of Jeremy Jones that accompanied the article, "The Life of a Killer" (December 4, 2005, A1). Photo manipulation of the type seen on Sunday's front page detracts from the reporting and writing it accompanies. In addition, its sensational nature lessens the reputation of the AJC. Finally, it is a small step from the Jeremy Jones 'picture' used by the AJC to the sort of regrettable and offensive photo-manipulation done by TIME magazine to the OJ Simpson's mugshot for its cover (see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:OJ_Simpson_Newsweek_TIME.png).
Good reporting, good writing, and good photography will stand on their own, and do not need to be accompanied by such "art" to make their point. Please reconsider the use of such images.
Thank you for your time and thought on this matter. I continue to read and enjoy to the AJC.
