The real priority

I was puzzled by your placement of stories in the A section of The Bee on Sept. 29. News on Iraq was printed on page A12, and the story of the crackdown on Myanmar dissidents appeared on A11. Yet a story regarding the new design for Fresno State's mascot was on A1, when it should have been placed in the Local section, or perhaps in Sports.

Our sons and daughters are dying in a war halfway around the world, and people in an oppressed country are boldly protesting against their government. Does a university's sports mascot really take priority here?
