From the LA Times
Dear Sen. Clinton:

I'm writing to commend you for calling for a $90-million study on the effects of video games on children, and in particular the courageous stand you have taken in recent weeks against the notorious "Grand Theft Auto" series.

I'd like to draw your attention to another game whose nonstop violence and hostility has captured the attention of millions of kids — a game that instills aggressive thoughts in the minds of its players, some of whom have gone on to commit real-world acts of violence and sexual assault after playing.

I'm talking, of course, about high school football.

I know a congressional investigation into football won't play so well with those crucial swing voters, but it makes about as much sense as an investigation into the pressing issue that is Xbox and PlayStation 2.

Your current concern is over explicit sex in "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas." Yet there's not much to investigate, is there? It should get rated appropriately, and that's that. But there's more to your proposed study: You want to examine how video games shape children's values and cognitive development.

I'm cleaning out my LJ list today...

Some of you may be offended...but ya know what...TO BAD.
I'm bringing my journal back to why I original started it, for ME to
write freely. I've found I have to many filters, blocking to many ppl,
whats the point then? A few ppl were left, just because I enjoy reading
their ramblings, w/o knowing them, but that was a very small group.

You really want to know why you specifically were deleted, email me.

Otherwise, don't bitch, if your confused but not willing to
email me about it...ask yourself 3 things...
1. how much have you changed since i've met you
2. how much do we really talk, are we really friends?
3. Do I really care that he just finds my journal extremely boring?

Thrills me again, i really love the way
that man writes. Just finished Girlfriend in a Coma.
I'd love to know how he spins stories the way he does,
all of them grasp just enough on realism, that you get
so drawn in, then come out of the books realizing he
just really made you think. I'm not sure if I agree
with the critics that it puts him up there with Vonnegut,
but I see what they were stretching for, its still not
Cats Cradle.

The end for now...more update later

You're a Post-Punk. You know 70s punk was cool, but
it was mostly just a stepping stone for the
greater intellectualism of what would come
after. The 80s were amazing. You quite possibly
have huge hair, and may wear lots of black.
Snare drums need reverb. Lots and lots of

Goth Diety
You scored 83!
You're so goth you can't see your reflection in the mirror. People frequently ask you "Are you in a band?" because you're dressed like a rock star....even to do laundry or go get groceries. Not only do you know who Switchblade Symphony is AND own thier entire discography, but you've seen them live before they broke up AND they liked your company when you hung out with them afterwards.Your dream profession is anything where you can look as extreme as you want. This isn't style for you...this is lifestyle.

My test tracked 1 variable How you compared to other people your age and gender:

You scored higher than 97% on gothies
