Front page story leaves much to be desired



On Feb. 12, I had the privilege of seeing Les Miserables. It was a wonderful Valentine's Day treat, filled with meaning and great eternal truths - that God's love can turn a heart of stone to a heart of flesh, and that a heart thus changed can make a difference to hurting people. It was a beautiful reminder of the true meaning of love.

Then, on Feb. 13, I read on the front page of The Chronicle an article entitled "Adult zoo tours offer wild Valentine's." Amazingly, sex changes, homosexuality and rape are referred to as mere amorous antics, and some folks are paying as much as $100 to hear all the "dirty details." Talk about "looking for love in all the wrong places!" Our society is so desperately in search of a love that satisfies that they are heading to the zoo!

Is the editor on vacation? Who decided to place this bit of news on the front page of The Chronicle? Whenever the responsible party returns from hiatus, perhaps more newsworthy articles will appear below the fold. Lastly, I would suggest Les Miserables over the zoo any Valentine's Day.
