The paper is already drawing heat for its Web site link to videos of reporter Daniel Pearl's gruesome murder in Pakistan. Now Publisher Stephen Mindich has told reporters he intends to publish photos of the slaying this week, if the grainy photos will reproduce, the Hartford Courant reports. "It has to be seen," Mindich told the Courant. "This is not a movie. It's not Hollywood. This is a human being [that] went through this thing. While I understand the pain felt by the Pearl family, the pain is as great for all of us in a different way. I think this brings the pain to everybody."
