Retailers and rock stars are upset over the fact that the Rolling Stone magazine decided to put the Boston bombing suspect on the cover. Retailers are no doubt embarassed to have to display the magazine. Rock stars are no doubt upset because instead of giving them publicity, an alleged terrorist was put there.
The cover says "How a popular, promising student was failed by his family, fell into radical Islam and became a monster".
Are they sympathizing with the terrorists or pondering the answer to a legitimate question?
