Letter: Photos didn't tell the story of meeting with legislators

To the editor,

 I'm unclear about the etiquette of complaining about photos that run as part of a news story.  But it seems to me that the photos you printed -- including one of a very cranky-looking moi -- in your March 13 coverage of the Gerlach-Sterner listening session convey a faulty impression of what happened at that meeting.

The standing-room-only crowd engaged our legislators in a spirited, generally congenial discussion of admittedly serious and complex issues.   It was not the Rip-Your-Rep session that those photos seem to suggest.  I hope attendance at future gatherings of this kind will not be discouraged because you printed pictures in which everybody looks miserable.
