Regarding the Dec. 31 Style feature “A year full of birthdays”:

Of all the available birthday photos, why choose to highlight one that glorifies binge drinking? The large photo of a guy pouring alcohol straight from the bottle down the throat of his brother made me groan. I expect better judgment from The Post, especially on a day that too often ends in dangerous overindulgence.

The use of the photo of brothers celebrating their April birthdays was a poor choice on many levels. It was also a confusing one, considering the heart-breaking article in the same day’s Metro section that highlighted the perils of drunken driving [“A deadly car ride and the dangers of driving drunk”].
