Re "Defense says drug sex romp was just a consensual affair" (Page A1, July 17): I note with some disgust that the newspaper recently featured very large photos and extensive coverage of an alleged call girl murderess on the front page of your newspaper. On July 17, I got to see a more than half page color photo of this person on the front page, complete with other photos on later pages. I tried to find anything in the sports section about ladies' golf and naturally got a full dose of men's golf and Tiger Woods.
I have nothing against males and Tiger Woods. Sure, this accused person must be considered attractive, and I guess drugs and sex sell papers. However, this issue reminds me- and should remind most other women- that we have a long way to go.
