A violent video game never killed anyone, but I suppose an Xbox is heavy enough that if you threw it at someone's head it would kill them. Video games are not designed to kill people (only virtual people). Guns are designed for only one thing, to kill. There's a little bit of a difference.

Present these dirty, dirty boobies and I shall wash them. For this nation, of course.

Magorn: I  think the news is far worse than violent entertainment.  Entertainment we KNOW is fake.  The news, especially with its "If it bleeds it leads" orientation and scare-mongering "Special reports" is presenting a distorted view of reality that makes believe things that are simply not true.   Crime is way down in the US and the country less violent than its ever been.  But if you polled the middlin' inormed man on the street, I''d guarantee you they believe the exact opposite.

Moreover that feeling of danger and mailaise seeps into your unconscious even if you are consciously aware that the distortions are not true.  I personally very nearly ruined a production of Midsummer's Night Dream by the Washington Shakespeare Company this last Sunday because of it.   I was seated in the last row of the lower level on the aisle right next to the exit door, and during the third act the door burst open and a screaming man ran through it.  I was half out of my seat, aiming a punch at his groin and preparing to body tackle him, before I was even consciously aware I was doing anything.  Fortunately my wife's hand on my shoulder caused me to hesitate just a fraction of a second, and my brain clicked on the fact that the screaming man was the actor playing Bottom doing an entrance to the stage from the back of the theatre.

Until that moment I hadn't actually realized how jumpy a steady diet of news from places like Aurora and Sandy Hook had actually made me

Oh, but how glorious would that have been had you cockpunched a stage actor. You'd have gotten and standing ovation from me, anyway.

I'm in the midwest, an area I would call the muffin top of the bible belt. Here, violence is fine, I mean, we's all about shootin' folks!, but naked people are the ultimate corrupting evil.

You said "dirty" twice.

Because most boobies come in pairs.

wambu: Stop the hate against boobies.

Seriously. I think the takeaway is that we want to be titillated. Whether it's violence or sex, we want things that get our blood moving (um, metaphorically?).

So let's give these goddamn repressive morons what they want - Saving Private Ryan is now verboten, Shaving Ryan's Privates is now A-OK for network TV (but only on Valentine's Day). Instead of censoring the three boobs scene in Total Recall, they censor the rest of it instead. Jenna Haze instantly becomes the favorite to win every "Best Actress" Oscar for the rest of time (well, until her lips fall off).

Imagine Aurora never happened, but instead a summer movie contained a scene of a gunman going into a movie theater and slaughtering people. What would be the public and the critical response to that?

Pretty good if I had to guess....
