The Blame Game

“Legislators don’t worry too much about what’s constitutional. We just try to do what’s right, and we let the courts figure that out.”

– Minnesota Senator Sandy Pappas (? article has “Poppas”)

From a fascinating (and frequently hilarious) National Review Online article (pointed out by the invaluable EFF newsletter) about how the games industry is being blamed for the recent Virginia Tech bloodbath… even though the perpetrator apparently never played video games.

As I’ve been saying for a decade or two, if the games industry would just grow up it wouldn’t be subject to this kind of childish attack.
