I would like to agree very much with Gary Balzola (“What is it good for?” Chronicle Forum, Sep 1) regarding how all the world continues to suffer thanks to inept world leaders from all sides causing so much tragedy by their misguided actions that end up like (the wars in) Vietnam, Iraq and now Afghanistan.
Gary also mentioned trying to complain to TV stations regarding advertising that promotes gambling but has had a negative response.
I have also complained about these ads, with nil response.
Another complaint from me to ABC television regarding certain recent highly promoted, so called “comedy” shows, that are laced with dreadful swear words and yet are promoted as “M” for a mature audiences; recommended for those 16 years of age.
I would not like a 16-year-old hearing that vile language, let alone a mature adult.
Of course, I have not heard a reply from our ABC!
Letter, Sep 3
