A Pennsylvania congressman who said that Grand Theft Auto was more likely to be a bad influence on ghetto children than their suburban counterparts feels he has been mistreated by Jon Stewart and The Daily Show.

What the senators in the story, and all of the politicians who attack gaming miss is that Grand Theft Auto and games like it are not for, or marketed to kids! They also miss the most important point in this issue, PARENTS should be deciding what thier kids play, parents should be watching what thier kids play, watch on TV, what sites thier kids go to on the internet. Thats the job of parents, not a nanny state!

The problem is that parents aren't doing their part - and kids *are* getting to play this game. My son says that there should be an IQ test that you have to take before you play games like this - and you have to pass the IQ test (proving that you're not dumb enough to think this is something you should do irl) - before you can actually play the game. I think that's a good idea...
