Vail Daily letter: Unnecessary and heartless

Wow! While Randy Wyrick’s Nov. 14 article regarding the avalanche that took Taft Conlin’s life was more of the he said/she said, that photo was not necessary to publish. Shame on you! There are many kids and adults in this community that have worked hard to move forward in a life without Taft. Seeing the image from his GoPro was unnecessary and frankly heartless! Has it come to sensational reporting as a lack of anything better to do? Does your paper not know how profoundly this accident has affected our community? I would love to meet the people who decided this photo was appropriate and necessary. Better yet, I’d rather not!
