This week, Nintendo once again topped the news in the world of video games, taking a risk with the exclusive release of a violent, Mature-rated game for the Wii, a console that generally supports wares of a more family-friendly variety. Meanwhile, Take-Two announced a big loss for the first quarter of 2009, while Amazon, apparently eager to recession-proof its business, announced a new game trade-in program. The release this week of Sega's "MadWorld" on the Wii has apparently not gone over well with the National Institute on Media and the Family.

Dear National Institute on Media and the Family. Yawn. Just don't buy it. If you don't want your kids swinging chainsaws or sign posts or golf clubs, don't buy the game. Don't even look at it. Simple right? As simple as turning off the television when you see anything offensive. Oh but you have to watch right? Cause if you don't watch then what are you going to squawk about? If you don't watch it who else is going to warn us about another nasty gaming company trying to turn our poor children into mindless killing machines. Who...DEAR GOD IN HEAVEN...who?

Should businesses and organizations require staff to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination before physically coming to work?
Yes -- At this point it makes good sense and will help stop the spread of the virus.
No -- It sets a bad precedent against personal privacy and civil liberties.
I'm Not Sure -- There are valid arguments for and against vaccine requirements.
