Angus T. Jones has proved momentarily brave in speaking out against the "filth" on "Two and a Half Men," as he did in November. His twinge of conscience was short-lived, however.
Jones is returning to the show after rescinding his earlier statements, with apologies ("Teen actor to return to CBS show," Jan. 13).
I still applaud Jones' earlier conscience in speaking out against "filth." I hail his words: "Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you'll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch." Unfortunately, Jones gave in to the powerful and noisy voices of Hollywood.
The battle of right over wrong is endless and manifest in every arena of life.
