A few musings on violence in entertainment...


(puts down the vuvuzela)

Now that I have your attention, I'd like to share a few (possibly enlightening) comments on violence - specifically, the public's perception of violence in the entertainment industry. As I am typing this, the finals of the World Cup have just begun (go Netherlands!), and it's certain that there's a lot of security on hand to deal with the inevitable post-game brouhaha.

Major gaming events like E3 and GenCon, on the other hand, don't require near as much security.

And they say video games and D&D promote violence?

Something just isn't right here.
