Re: Metro, Dec. 13
What were you thinking? Unless either Scrooge or the Grinch heads up your editorial staff, I cannot understand why you would run the picture you had on the front page of your Dec. 13 issue. Your photo of Santa being hauled off to jail by the Mounties will undoubtedly be seen by innumerable Ottawa children. All you had to do was put it inside the paper, not on the front page. I think you stepped beyond poor judgment and entered the realm of irresponsibility. How many children will be asking their parents why Santa is being carted off? Admit it, you’ve blundered badly. Apologize to Santa, and to all the children of Ottawa. Otherwise, expect nothing but lumps of coal in your stockings.
