A: Do you know?

From my archives, when once upon a time I had reported on foto-journalistic stories from the daily front. These may B older images yet I can not feel that they may not still have some prevalence in our societal deluge of abused children. This child had been victim to continuous cigarette burns by its parents.

    Good photo. Subject matter sux. Parents like that should have the shit beat out of them. I guess you have to have kids to really get a taste of what I feel when I see stuff like this. My daughter is 8.
