If Rolling Stone had put an ugly, guilty, or bomber-esque photo of Tsarnaev on the cover, would we all be so angry still? I have to say, I am a bit shocked and disturbed that everyone is so taken aback by the cover. I think it is critical to start the conversation regarding "how can something like this happen" by asking the hard question of "how can something like this happen to such a normal, attractive, well-liked scholar athlete of a kid attending one of the best public schools in America in a diverse and ethnically tolerant city like Cambridge?" I, for one, think the photograph itself begs the question, and I can't seem to understand why folks aren't seeing the larger context of why RS might have chosen to publish that particular photograph. The photograph itself causes us to be uncomfortable and to question how THIS kid did this to us....and to himself. I think it is a very important question.
