Offended by art

Dear Editor:What the hell were you thinking? I submit that a recent Downey Patriot photograph is an example of why violence is a way of life in our society. The article cited the success of a Stay Gallery toy drive but the large picture (a knife slicing a woman's lip and dripping blood) on the gallery wall next to the decorated tree and collected children's gifts is horrific. Your photo is reprehensible. Shame on you! Bonnie Beall Downey
