The Hinsdalean regrets running a photo of the band Sushi Roll with the calendar listings in last week’s paper.
One of the band members is sticking out his tongue and pulling his eyes to the side, which several readers have identified as racially offensive.
“The photo was hastily chosen from the band’s Facebook page, and I initially thought the band member was simply making a silly face,” editor Pamela Lannom said. “I offer my sincere apology for running it.”
