National story is also a local one

On Wednesday's Herald front page — a headline about Java Juggs owner. On the same day, on page A8, is the headline, “Video of 2nd beheading released.” Seems a tabloid type story is more important to The Herald than the horrific beheading of a second American journalist in two weeks at the hands of the devils called Islamic State extremists.
This is a critical local story as well as a national, thus deserves front page coverage. The devils are increasing and plan to kill as many Americans as they can. Be alarmed? We had better be, and must put pressure on Obama and Congress to take immediate action against evil or it will (and is) spread like a cancer uncontrolled. To think we citizens even need to push Obama into doing his duty to this country's citizens! His hesitation and lack of depth regarding wiping these maggots out is a disgrace. A shallow, self-serving, “empty suit” for sure.
