I have one question concerning all the hoopla leading up to and around Chelsea Clinton's wedding, including the ceremony and the celebration afterward. How come I didn't see a single picture of the groom's side of the family in the print edition of The Post?

The Post's front page on July 31 devoted most of the above-the- fold portion to Chelsea Clinton's wedding. The record death toll of Americans killed in Afghanistan in one month was relegated to the bottom of the page as a teaser to a story inside.

With all due respect to Ms. Clinton, I question The Post's judgment and priorities regarding what is newsworthy, and I expect far better from this newspaper.

Who would have thought that the American media could get in such a fawning gush over a wedding between two investment bankers that might have cost $3 million or more (according to a wire service article on The Post's Web site), during one of the worst economic periods of recent memory in the United States?
