YOU (South Africa) - - SAY -

Re­cently numer­ous let­ters of com­plaint have been pub­lished about the scripts of cer­tain TV pro­grammes, in par­tic­u­lar 7de Laan. Are these peo­ple in­sane? The make-be­lieve world of TV seems to have be­come re­al­ity in their brains.

Many peo­ple are un­able to dis­cern fact from fic­tion. Be­fore TV, books were read, peo­ple gath­ered and com­mu­ni­cated, di­a­logue was a part of daily life, and ex­tended fam­i­lies and friends went on pic­nics.

We’re in trou­ble, as the pu­trid box con­trols the fool­ish and fee­ble-minded. PETER BACHTIS, EMAIL
