Was Easter the right time for a two-page spread on burlesque in The Sun? [Letter]

Easter

Would it not have been possible (and prudent) for Chris Kaltenbach and The Baltimore Sun to delay their two-page spread "MICA exhibit explores the history and revival of Baltimore burlesque," complete with pictures of scantily clad women, for one or two weeks? Good grief, I came home from church Sunday morning, opened the Arts and Entertainment section, and gazed upon the article in disbelief. Honoring the so-called art of seductive, burlesque striptease on Easter Sunday is, at the very least, distasteful. However, given the true meaning of this day, I suppose I should be saying instead, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do."
