“We are drowning our youngsters in violence, cynicism and sadism piped into the living room and even the nursery. The grandchildren of the kids who used to weep because the Little Match Girl froze to death now feel cheated if she isn’t slugged, raped and thrown into a Bessemer converter.”

–Jenkin Lloyd Jones, in an address delivered Saturday morning, April 7, 1973–
