* Gaming Harm?

Rock, Paper, Shotgun have a humorous article eviscerating the so-called "research" into the harm of video games:

Owning Consoles More Serious Than Gun Crime

A lot of videogames include the use of guns. While these may not be real guns, but rather recreations made of pixels and polygons, it is obvious to anyone playing one of these ?simulations? that it is in no meaningful way different from firing a real gun in a school. But it?s far scarier than you might have first thought. Nearly twice as many Americans own gun-displaying consoles than those who own the types of guns that require a license and paperwork to purchase. No such paperwork is necessary when buying an Xbox, and yet still teenagers will kill each other in the streets.
File this one under required reading - save and print a copy to give to your friends. This is amazingly well done.
