Ignoble story

Your front page article on Oct. 8, “Blood on Broad St.,” was disgusting, gross, ignoble, and mean-spirited. Joe Harris, a friend’s 26-year-old son, died and your newspaper demeaned his life. Joe Harris was loving, respectful, and polite to me and my husband. His tragic death didn’t warrant such bad press. The National Hotel probably has insurance to cover their losses and glass replacement. The true loss is the death of our young friend, Joseph Harris.
