Unkind words


Dear editor: I don't watch many sitcoms these days because most of them contain profanity and sexual situations. I enjoy the ones of the 1960s, such as "I Love Lucy," "The Beverly Hillbillies" and "The Andy Griffith Show." Andy Griffith plays Sheriff Andy Taylor, with his bumbling deputy, Barney Fife, played by comedian Don Knotts. Barney almost always gets himself into trouble, but rather than chide, curse or brow-beat him, Andy gives him the benefit of the doubt. He praises Barney for the work Andy does.
