I have to agree with the others here. The article is NOT about Buddha, or even Buddhism as it's understood by most practitioners. It's about a small group of isolated and idiosyncratic people that in no way reflect the traditions of Buddhism, either in America or elsewhere. It should have had Mr. Roach's pic on the cover, but I'm guessing you were worried about lawsuits and such.
To place dirt on the image of the Buddha and to cover his mouth is highly offensive to most traditional Buddhists, particularly NON-American ones who have nothing to do with Mr. Roach, and you guys have shown a serious lack of multicultural awareness by doing this.
Definitely a 'foot in mouth' moment for the Tucson Weekly.
