The problem with `children TV

The article "A New Day Coming for Kids' TV - Maybe," March 19, says that shows like "The Jetsons" and "GI Joe" are not educational children's programming. Yet these programs are innocuous compared with so many nighttime programs. It's not only adults who are watching these shows. It's no wonder violence, murder, and sexual deviation seem to be so prevalent. Kids know that cartoons are imaginary, but these other shows represent what seems to be the norm in society. Frances B. Jones, Claymont, Del.
