What I'd like to ask NBC is, why the cold feet?

Having decided to identify yourself as "The Official Network of Deranged Homicidal Sociopaths," why did you stop half-way?

I mean, really. Do you think Mr. Cho would have had any problem if you had first passed these pics to your photoshop guys, scoring a little more coverage with the logo across your boy's hat, his vest, on his shirt, on his glove?

C'mon, where's your pride?

... And then, what was that rumor I heard? Were you guys actually considering taking half the profit from the photos to fund some community mental health clinics -- since insurance (for those who can actually afford it) barely reimburses for psychological claims???

Oops, my mistake.
