Reporting should be less graphic


To the Editor:

The graphic detail the MV Times has chosen to supply in articles reporting episodes of sexual misconduct (most recently regarding the exotic dancer, for example) leads me to question how well your editorial staff believes our children can read. Am I old fashioned? I’m old enough to claim this territory, but I would like the voice of the Island to reflect some sensitivity for the likelihood of younger readers. I don’t believe full blow-by-blow accounts are in step with this community.
