if i get captured you better pick a good one!

First let me say I was relieved to see that the two reporters were released from North Korea. CNN is truly one of the only constants in my life and I had followed the story from the beginning. Now that they are home safe and reunited with their loved ones I can finally say this…

Why did they use this photo of Euna Lee? She looks like a webcam porn star. She is a respected journalist, wife and mother. Who chose this???

I noticed in the New York Times this morning a much better photo was used. Maybe she finally got a say in the matter.

Anyway, I’ve been dying every single time they showed that photo but didn’t want to say anything because, well, what a thing to comment about when these poor girls were being held in North Korea for what could have been 12 years!

Whew, I feel so much better and, thank God, they now do too.
