I lived in Santa Cruz for the past 25 years. While crime is a problem, THE REAL PROBLEM, is the political leaders of the city. They have created the bum problem by offering them social services (to the nth degree), being lax on convicting criminals, making headaches for businesses with too much regulation and sticking their heads in the sand when people point out these problems. If these politicians would take off their rose-colored glasses, or get voted out by the populace, Santa Cruz might be able to bring in some business.

All of the instances of application of blasphemy laws are in regards to the Muslim religion (if you can call it a religion at all) Islam is not compatible with free thinking, democracy (Egypt worked out wonderfully didn't it?), women's rights, or anything which may be considered different. When is the world going to realize the problem is Islam and it's inherent intolerance? As for Greece, I can only wonder what the hell is happening in the birthplace of democracy?

Of the many contributing causes to American violence, I don't think video games are an especially high priority. But neither do I think the possibility can be ignored. These attrocities have to end, and we should all be willing to consider all potential causes. I love video games, but if a thorough and valid scientific inquiry shows a causal or aggravating relationship between violent video games and real-world, violence, then I would be willing to accept restrictions on sales to minors.

I will be insistent that the NRA and other pro-gun groups contribute constructively to the debate and possible solutions, and be willing to compromise, and gamers need to be part of the conversation too.

By all means, let's not over react, and knee-jerk reactions are not helpful, on either side of the question. But there are no sacred cows.

Yes, there is a sacred cow. It's called Freedom of Speech.
