TNT: Bad choice for the front page

I have no idea how The New Tribune picks what is on the front page. With all that is going on in the world, the U.S. and our local community, how could you possibly justify the story of a local wedding chapel with a picture of a gun hanging in the background, not to mention the best man (a soldier) standing there in cargo shorts and an unironed shirt? Most of our military men and women have more pride in their dress and grooming.

Then we come to the gun thing: Mass killers in a movie theater and a Sikh temple (who was an Army veteran) dominate the news, and you think it’s cool to give free advertising to a business with the word “love” spelled out using a handgun, a grenade, a knife and a rifle.

You should be ashamed.
