Television: Society's Smoking Gun

I wish to express my heartfelt thanks for the Opinion page article on TV violence. It is a story whose time has come.

The author writes: ``Why is it so hard to get television to control its love affair with violence? Because violence sells. Why does it sell? Because the public buys it. We all make violence profitable.''

This should be taken not only seriously, but also with alarm over the moral decadence taking place in our country, for which the promotion of violence on TV is directly responsible. Geraldine S. Fulenwider, Lewiston, Maine
