Teen talk agrees with the letter Content and is glad to be Able to reprint this letter dear or. Reed color Channel of usually plays my favorite kind of music in fact it does All the time. It beats an accompaniment right now to the keys that i m pounding. If you consider the Ballad of Barbara Graham to be entertain i Don t know. In my opinion this is the lowest Type of song to expose your listening Public to. It All but glorifies a Mur Deress and a dead woman. Justice is a blindfolded statue Are you adults going to Don a Blindfold too and present such trash to us teenagers who no doubt comprise the bulk of your audience i attend Reseda High school and am a senior but in my Book this particular song is no Tom in Stead it holds up a woman who the courts and Justice suppose have declared guilty of a very serious act. What Are we Young people to do when such an act and such a woman is even immortalized in a song kids trying to and wanting to be adults and trying too hard in this mixed up atomic world cause the police much concern As juvenile we see it in the movies read it in the papers but do we now have to hear it in a song possibly glorification will make it More attractive the thing to do for notoriety.
