American columnist is an absolute nutcase

The New York Post believes you should sell your stock in Take Two Interactive because they make a violent videogame. The fact that Grand Theft Auto: Vice City has sold 5 MILLION FREAKING COPIES apparently has no bearing on this decision.

You've got to read the whole thing to understand how stridently this guy HATES the company and the game - but he has this to say at the end of the article:

Bottom line: Stay away from this stock - far, far away - and you'll be doing both your wallet and your fellow man a favor. Happy New Year.

Or you could call your favourite NASDAQ broker and buy it like there's no tomorrow just to stick it up this tossbag.

My favourite bit of it is this,

People, this is insane. This is 10,000 times worse than the worst thing anybody thinks Michael Jackson ever did to a little boy - or than any lie the feds think Martha Stewart ever told them, or any line in any song that Bruce Springsteen ever sang that rankled a cop in the Meadowlands.

So creating a videogame where you kill a lot of people is 10,000 times worse than buttfucking a 12-year-old? And this guy is claiming to be representing the moral side of the argument? How very odd.
