JT's Bill Passes Utah House

The Salt Lake Tribune reports the truth in advertising law coauthored by erstwhile attorney Jack Thompson has passed the Utah House of Representatives by an overwhelming margin of 70-2. If passed into law this bill would open retailers to civil lawsuits for selling adult-rated media to minors if they advertise they will not do so. The bill will now be voted on by the Utah State Senate.

At least 1 person has a clue (Littleme).

You can probably count on one hand the number of violent incidents that had high profile media coverage and some mention of video games.

But what people dont seem to ever count, is the number of violent incidents that happen that don't mention video games.

This is the kind of "logic" that dictates public opinion. Ignore the last ten thousand years of voilent human behavior that claimed untold millions of lives and caused untold amounts of suffering through unimaginal acts of cruelty, and focus on the 3 or 4 that mention video games.

And right now, with families being put out on the street because of the housing crisis, this just doesn't seem to be a good use of our goverments time. I mean, its not like those millions of people foreclosing on their homes are really interested in buying GTA4 at the moment.
