I don’t write many letters praising the Post-Dispatch, but this needs mentioning. The photo on the July 3 front page showing the funeral of Officer Michael Langsdorf was a piece of art. It will be remembered by me for a long time. Congratulations to photographer Laurie Skrivan for this piece of work. It combines a lot of feelings in one photo. It shows present-day officers, and I got the sense of officers from the past via the shadows. Wonderful composition. Well done.
