(NECN/AP) – Boston Mayor Tom Menino spoke out about the Rolling Stone Magazine cover on Wednesday.

The Boston Mayor also sent a letter to Rolling Stone.

The cover was ill-conceived at best and reaffirms a message that destruction gains fame for killers, Mayor Menino wrote in a letter to Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner.
"Among those we lost, those who survived, and those who help carry them forward, there are artists and musicians and dancers and writers. They have dreams and plans," he wrote. "They struggle and strive. The survivors of the Boston attacks deserve Rolling Stone cover stories, although I no longer feel that Rolling Stone deserves them."
