Letter: Show insults

Vince Murphy, Naples:

Show insults

On March 17, CBS aired an episode of “Amazing Race” in which the contestants traveled to Hanoi and crawled all over trophy wreckage of a B-52, in search of a clue for their next destination.

Brave U.S. airmen died on that very aircraft, and CBS saw fit to desecrate it by using it as a prop for their little game show.

Then, the contestants had to pose in front of a portrait of Ho Chi Minh and sing a song praising the Vietnam’s Communist Party.

I urge every American to remember what CBS did as we consider our entertainment options. They have the power to air whatever they want. We can choose another channel.

I am not writing as a Collier County judge, but rather as a Vietnam veteran.
