    To whom it may concern:

    I was shocked and dismayed to view the Michael Jackson “Photo Essay” slideshow on your site: http://html.nbc4.tv/sh/slideshow/_auto/sh4376s1.html

    I’m not sure if this is a public domain because I couldn’t navigate to it in the usual way, but a friend sent it to me. I put “Photo Essay” into quotes because this technique was actually stolen from a great web author who has been using this technique for awhile now and from what I know about the Internet – he originated the style.

    Not to mention there was no discussion of the content being displayed and the pictures were overused Michael Jackson photos that one could find anywhere and that have been viewed a million times over. Don’t even get me started on the horrid design. Or LACK of design.

    If you have any integrity you will at least credit the author who has been using this style for a long time now. Or hey, better yet, contact him to create a masterpiece for you. tony@tonypierce.com.

    Here is a sample of his work:

    And here is a particularly brilliant one:
