Tickets contest in poor taste

CAN you please explain the correlation between children's comics and Natural Born Killers, a movie that got a Category III rating because of 'over the top' violence (Sunday Young Post, November 20)? This juxtaposition becomes almost comical when the top half of the page has 'Uncle Art' trying to show toddlers how to draw a baby kangaroo. The front page has an article that quotes Dr Leung Jin-pang as saying 'teenagers tend to be very curious and apt to be affected by the things they hear or read. Delusion will form if youngsters keep on reading . . . without properly discussing the feelings they develop'.


You could argue that the film is satirical, but how many of your younger readers can define satire, much less comprehend the nuances of it? DAVE FRENCH Mid-Levels
