War games

I heard a report on public radio yesterday on the video games that have been developed since this latest war began. The reporter said that Iraqi people - probably others, as well - were offended that Americans would make games of this war. One person who commented - I don't remember who she was, but I think she had some kind of "expert" position - said we all cope in different ways. Some people listen to music, some people have it out on the golf course, some people play video games.

That comment so misses the point. People are playing these games to help assuage their inner turmoil? I doubt it.
