THE GLOBE, TOO. I confess that I hadn't noticed the Globe's photo of a dying Victoria Snelgrove until I read the comments to my earlier item. I had seen the photo, and had noticed the dreadlocked young man in the foreground. But Snelgrove's sprawled body eluded my not-so-keen eye the first time around. No excuse - all I had to do was read the caption.

It's black-and-white, it's small, and it's not nearly as graphic as either of the two photos that the Herald published. It's also not on the front page. But I wouldn't have run it, and I don't think the Globe should have.
