Please, newspaper editors, keep our newspapers clean

Editor: I wish to support John Wilson in demanding that our national newspapers rid themselves of the numerous amount of expletives used in some columns. No matter how ingenious their disguise, dirty words are unacceptable and no self-respecting journalist should use them.{{more}}

What kind of example are we setting for our children and young people when we pursuit this culture of filthy language. It has become ubiquitous within our society and now it has infiltrated our newspapers. This is distasteful and must be addressed by our community leaders and the reading public.

We never find this kind of language used by Dr Kenneth John, Jomo Thomas, Dr Adrian Frazier, Blazer Williams, Dr Jules Ferdinand, Renrick Rose or Bassy. These are people of the highest calibre, who understand the need to conduct themselves in a respectable manner.

Please, newspaper editors, keep our newspapers clean.
