Television ad shows disrespect to teachers

JEAN M. SULLIVAN, Carson City

I was about to retire for the night when an ad for Round Table Pizza came on and disturbed me so much I had to get out of my bed and fire up my computer.

In today’s world of children at risk, children out of control, children with so many problems they have need of role models, Round Table Pizza comes up with a “teacher” who resembles the epitome of stupidity who must cross through a school cafeteria area where children are out of control having a food fight and assaulting this nerd.

Just what kind of example does this ad show our children as it repeats on the TV screen dozens of times a day? Seems to me that Round Table managers need to know some things are tasteless, and I for one will not buy another Round Table pizza until this ad is removed from the TV.

I hope others will join me.
