Beatles' harmful influence

Dear Editor:

I noticed recently the number of books about the Beatles on prominent display at the Downey Library.

According to what I read on the Internet, the Beatles not only used mind-altering drugs, their music recommended the use of mind-altering drugs. Their music also made murder sound cute ("Maxwell's Silver Hammer").

Perhaps the Downey Library is unwittingly extending the myth that the Beatles are fun and harmless, thus continuing their harmful influence. Tony Tinajero Downey
