    What kind of an a**hole do you have to be to post an image of a child who is obviously shattered? Think before you post.

    I have seen instructions on how to recover “deleted” photos from a memory card, if it has not been formatted. I think this was what it was, anyway. I’ll see if I can find the information. It would definitely be a good thing to know.
