The Imperial Avenue serial murders left many more questions than answers for the entire community of Northeast Ohio. Some of those questions were answered in the Plain Dealer's profile of accused killer Anthony Sowell. Tuesday morning at 9, we'll hear more about abuse in Sowell's childhood household. Then, we'll find out how families of victims and the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood are healing. Tuesday morning at 9, join host Dan Moulthrop for a conversation following up with Imperial Avenue.

It is not the Plain Dealer’s coverage or the article itself that bothered me, but rather it was the two half-page above the fold photographs of Sowell’s face that I found offensive. What other people/events did the PD use their front page in that way to “advertise” their story? Is his photograph the most important news items of that day—or was the PD “advertising” their article - what they wanted people to read? This may sound petty - but we all spent money to get one full page of Sowell’s photo. More and more I am concerned about the editorial decisions this paper is making.
