Here we go again…

Posted by ALmod on January 18, 2008

This time, it’s about the illegal street races.  Again, the movies and video games are responsible

“Films such as “The Fast and the Furious” series and video games have added to the popularity of the events, which can often includes gambling.”

Every time I hear that argument, this cartoon comes to mind.  We are correct in assuming that there are some who will watch or play these things and get stupid ideas in their heads, but stupid really has no cure– with the possible exception of Darwin.  Stupid is going to have that street race with or without a video game, and if stupid isn’t street racing, stupid is going to find something else stupid to do.

That brings me to my next observation from this article.

“John Rogers Drive is just one known hot spot for illegal street racing, a longtime pastime in Birmingham and cities across the United States.”

Isn’t that right where a certain mayor is currently talking about introducing more traffic?
