    I don't think I would enjoy a game whose sole purpose is killing, although I certainly understand the rush one gets from battling through and winning.

    (Then I go off and pick some flowers to make more potions...heh.  In The Elder Scrolls games, alchemy is an excellent skill to develop, even if you're mostly a fighter, not a magic user.)

    Nevertheless, I don't believe games and movies cause people to become berserk mass murderers.  Comics, either, despite what was said in the 1940s & 50s.

    Our politicians want a convenient "evil" to blame, against all evidence.

    Have you seen the diary by the person in Japan?  They play the same games, watch the same movies, and have almost zero gun violence -- mainly b/c few people have guns.

    To make the argument that the media has a left- or right-wing, or a liberal or a conservative bias, is like asking if the problem with Al-Qaeda is do they use too much oil in their hummus. Al Franken
