What a terrible idea [“ ‘It’s still a huge wound’: Remembering the Green River victims,” page one, March 20]!

Mass murderers delight in the notoriety and sensationalism resulting from their crimes. If these people are memorialized because of the manner of their deaths, we will have every murderer trying to outdo him in their own quest for notoriety.
