The Greatest Threat to Our Nation. "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas." At least, according to the National Institute on Media and the Family, it is. The Daily Show had a line recently about how any group with the name "family" in it should be approached with caution.
I caught this group on C-SPAN this afternoon along with Holy Joementum Lieberman. To demonstrate just how violent and graphic some video games are, they showed a video clip featuring "GTA: San Andreas," "Mortal Kombat," "Halo 2," along with some others. My reaction of course was, "Wow, those games look awesome!"

Sure, seven-year olds probably shouldn't be playing some of these games. But they also probably shouldn't be eating paste in art class. And the violence at sporting events these days is much more real. Not to mention our untidy little war going on in Iraq. Seven-year olds there don't need an X-Box to see people getting fragged.
