Photographs And Memories
I found the Star's choice of photos to use on the respective 7th District candidates with their biographical pieces a little unusual. No surprise that the newspaper would show a photo of a young Andre Carson with his grandmother, the late U.S. Rep. Julia Carson. I think this is the first time, however, that I've seen the newspaper use a shirtless photo of a political candidate in a news story. I thought for a second I was looking at an Abercrombie & Fitch advertising photo when I saw a shirtless, collegiate Jon Elrod covered in a little mud after playing rugby with his teammates. Your thoughts?
