I write a column called Backyard Beat for the Pioneer Press Newspaperes in suburban Chicago, and wondered if you would allow me to use the photo with a story I’ve written about columbine. I would give you credit and your photo company credit, as well as the Web site as payment.

    Please do let me know one way or the other as soon as you can.
