Re "Changed life takes another U-turn" (Page A1, March 29): My husband and I were really upset that The Bee chose to feature Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow in both a front page story and a photo taking up almost half the page.

To make a criminal such a focal point seems so wrong, especially in light of events like the catastrophic losses in Washington state and all the heroes working that disaster.

I understand the relevance of his story in light of the Sen. Leland Yee charges, but did it need to be on the front page with a full photo. I truly think it was a very poor choice of location and sends the wrong message. We don't need to glorify criminal behavior
