March 1, 2006 - Violent media has existed as long as human history and the debate over how or when to control it is as hotly contested as ever.

The debate on "videogame violence" is the same as on drugs.

News show only the sad drug stories and not the ones dude tripping on acid and having the time of his life and the next day going to work as a banker that makes more money than the sad newscasters trying to ruin drugs for everybody.
