The Rolling Stone cover image can’t hurt us

That shot of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as handsome stoner doesn’t make me any less angry than I already was about the crimes of which he’s accused. It doesn’t make him any more sympathetic a figure. It doesn’t tell us anything we don’t already know — especially here, where we know it painfully well.
