Privacy concerns

ASHLAND

The good news this morning is that the two Fox News journalists who were kidnapped in the Gaza Strip have been released.

But David B. Perry of Ashland has some questions about the Globe's coverage of the story.

In a Letter to the Editor today, he questions the use of a picture --reportedly released by the kidnappers -- of one of the journalists' driver's license, saying he could discern personal information on it.

"I can only hope that the decision to include that photo was a terrible mistake," he wrote.
