I disagree with what Harry Shearer was trying to get across to readers when he wrote "Tube-tied" (Oct. 28). The problem is regulating what children watch; if we don't, who will? Shows for children, especially those shown at school, should be screened. Millions of taxpayers are not willing to give up money to have their kids going to school to watch television.
Christoper Whittle and company may be paying for the VCRs and televisions, but who is paying for the teachers' to "teach" the children? If we do not allow these subliminal commercials to enter the public school, then we will not have to worry about it being regurgitated in our children.
