A 21-year-old woman named Victoria Snelgrove died after being shot by cops during the celebration of the Red Sox playoff victory ... and a Boston paper had the unbelievable bad taste to publish graphic photos of her wounds (for which it has now had to apologize).

Is it surprising that the paper in question is the right-wing, Kerry-hating Boston Herald? (For that matter, was it surprising that John Lennon's morgue photo wound up on the front page of Rupert Murdoch's New York Post?)

These are the papers we can always turn to for prattle about "traditional values." Apparently, "traditional values" don't include refraining oneself from making a cheap buck off a corpse.
