Here's the explanation run by the San Jose Mercury News when it printed a particularly controversial photograph:

Dear reader,

The decision to publish the front page photograph of Richard Allen Davis' obscene gesture wasn't an easy one.

Let me tell you why we decided to do it.

Ever since Davis' arrest, I've wanted to know more about the character of a man who could kill Polly Klaas.

Ever since it became clear that the jury would convict him, I've wanted to know how he would react, what he's thinking.

Even though it's unclear precisely who the target of the gesture is, I believe the photograph tells us something about Davis' contempt for the system that convicted him.

While the gesture is vulgar, it does give us some insight. In fact, I suspect that it will become one of those indelible photographic images that will come to represent a terrible episode in American life.

For those reasons, I thought the photograph was worth publishing. I'd be interested in your views, too. Jerry Ceppos

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
