Gaming article in

I was alerted to this article in WSJ.

Good stuff.  Here's a good quote of a quote...
"You have to have a job to buy food and things, and if you don't go to work, you get fired," she said matter-of-factly. "And if you spend all your money buying stuff, you have to make more." Thanks to The Sims, Mr. Reynolds says, his daughter now knows how to budget and how to read an income statement. In SimWorld, he notes, "narcissism, hedonism and impulsiveness are punished" and "traditional middle-class virtues, like thrift and planning, generally pay off."

This is good stuff. The quotes of Hillary Clinton and others reminds of back in the late '70s and into the '80s when Heavy Metal was "causing suicide" and other drival. Stairway to Heaven is now elevator music and pales in comparison to Maralyn Manson and others. But who 10 years NineInchNails, and Black Label Society will probably be in an elevator near you.

Isn't life great!
