Letter: Sleazy headline

Enough is enough. I don’t care how many “prizes” this newspaper wins. It is time for your staff to decide whether you are journalists or whether you work for the National Enquirer.

Your sleazy (and I’m being kind here) headline regarding Sean McMillan’s tragic death is not quite in keeping with the award-winning series on suicide you did just over a year ago. Sean McMillan was more than the husband of “embezzler” Robin McMillan. He was someone’s son, someone’s father, someone’s friend.

How sad for his family and friends to open this newspaper and see a person that they loved treated in this manner. How sad for the readers of this newspaper to see how their death might be treated in the local rag if there is any kind of scandal involved. How sad for survivors of suicide to be subjected to this headline. I wish I had a subscription so that I could cancel it.
