Last week, Ali reported on the Illinois State Legislature's "Safe Games Illinois Act". Today, the Official State of Illinois News Page has denounced the release of Midway's NARC and uses it as yet another example of why the State needs the "Safe Games" act.

And this following excerpt from the State of Illinois News Page, spoken by Gov. Blogojevich, is ridiculous. Kids cannot easily get their hands on this game unless an adult buys it for them.

?I?ve gotten to know quite a few video games over the last few months, but this may be the worst I?ve seen,? said Gov. Blagojevich. ?When kids play NARC, they spend their free time pretending to be drug addicts and learning how to hurt people. Right now, children can easily get their hands on NARC, and other games just like it. The Safe Games legislation would give parents the tools they need to protect their children from games like NARC, and I strongly urge the Senate to help turn this commonsense bill into law.?

A more productive approach would be to use State funds to create informational public service TV commercials that would explain to parents the current rating system.

Grr!
