    i despise video games. this isn't because i do/don't like first person shooters...i think the last fun time I had playing a game may have been Goldeneye on the N64 in a college dorm.

    no, wait, I played the crap out of Donkey Kong Country with my girlfriend for about 3 days a couple of years ago.

    in general, though, video games simply don't appeal to me and it wouldn't directly impact me to see them regulated off the shelves.

    but they aren't the problem. No amount of desire for violence makes DOING that violence as easy as access to a semi-automatic rifle or pistol does. You can enjoy Call of Duty. You can hate some subset of your fellow man. But to sure-fire kill a couple dozen people you need a real weapon and an unbalanced mind.

    I'd like to see those weapons regulated reasonably, and that mind get the help it needs without stigma. instead, i'm betting i get a national discussion of video games and whether lisa long is a good mom.

    If only Michael Phelps hadn't smoked that pot...imagine what he could have accomplished with motivation and good lung capacity.
