“It was just coincidental.” That’s what we were told when we questioned photographer James Hamilton of the New York Observer about a curious photo he took of a man and his two women. The photo shows Barbara Foster sitting on the lap of her husband, Michael Foster, with Mr. Foster’s girl-friend, Letha Hadady, standing next to them. In the background, prominently displayed, is a large picture of the Madonna.
What bothered the league about this is that the story, which also ran in the New YorkDaily News, described the lifestyle of this sexual threesome, none of whom is Catholic. Indeed, the Foster’s were married in a Philadelphia synagogue; Ms. Hadady is also Jewish. Hamilton said that the picture of the Madonna was attached to the back of a door in the Foster’s apartment. It just happened to be in the photo, or so we are supposed to believe.
