Tickets contest in poor taste

I AM writing to express my disgust at the competition offering Sunday Young Post readers tickets to see the film that has been responsible for at least 10 deaths in the United States and four in France.

DISGUST is the word which most closely describes my reaction to the letter entitled ''Gweipoh Groan'' (Sunday Morning Post, August 8).
