Filthy language reflects society

Madam – I am writing to complain about the use of the 'F' word in last Sunday's paper. It is the first time in my life I have seen this filth in print – in a reputable paper like the Sunday Independent – and was shocked.

It is frankly offensive and not acceptable to your educated readers. Surely good journalism must lead by example.

We are already growing up with a delinquent society in this country, filthy language, crime, assaults, lawlessness on a daily basis in our cities and towns. with no respect for the law or authority. I won't mention the pestering drunks and drug addicts on our streets in Dublin. What must our visitors think?
