To the Editors of The Crimson:

I am appalled and angry at the window display I witnessed at the Vision House in Harvard Square last night. There are trash cans in the window and stuffed in one trash can is a woman's body with only her upturned legs visible. Hanging from her high heeled shoe is a pair of eye glass frames. I can't for the life of me see any connection between the inferred violence and eye glasses. After seeing someone raped, murdered, or mutilated and stuffed in a trash can, why would I want to buy eye glasses!? I spoke with the manager of the store who said he didn't see a problem with the display. He didn't want to identify himself. When will store owners and other advertisers ever learn that people aren't objects for abuse? Rebecca Roop-Kharasch
