Vice and Virtue

Go figure:  Jezebel slams Vice's "breaktakingly tasteless" spread depicting famous female writers suicides--while showing every photo from it (complete with slit wrists, gun in mouth, etc.), in large size, no less.  Lo and behold, Vice pulls the entire spread ("We will no longer display 'Last Words' on our website and apologize to anyone who was hurt or offended.")--and Jezebel is still showing all the photos, starting with Sylvia Plath (left) contemplating her kitchen oven.  Some commenters there object to Jezebel doing this, others ask why they don't just post one photo if they really feel the need to offer a flavor, but not all of them.
