Should Gamestop (among others) quit selling it?
That's a bit more of a quagmire... Gamestop and Babbage's are both game retailers. That's what they sell. They sell kiddie games, and they sell mature games, and everything in between. I think for them to not carry it now just because it has an A-O rating is a cop-out.
I need to process this a bit more. Unfortunately, I can no longer go do research at the library, since the Government decided last night that monitoring everyone's library activity is a good thing for them to do. And we all know that playing violent videogames is a training method for future terrorism, or at least shooting up the local High School.
Doesn't anyone read 1984 anymore?
Edit: I just checked, and to buy 535 copies each (100 Senators, 435 Representatives) of 1984 and Farenheit 451 through Amazon would be just short of $8,000. So, any ideas on how to set up a drive to assemble the money for that? If I were able to get the money to buy the books, I'd take time off work and deliver them myself.
Edit II: Okay, 1984, Fahrenheit 451, and Brave New World, 545 Copies (100 Senators, 435 Representatives, 1 President, and 9 Supreme Court Justices) for $13,788.50. Wonder if the publishers would let me order just a whole case of each for less?
