The Wall Street Journal

 Our family has this very odd thing where unusual occurrences happen often.  My 16 year old son posted a game play strategy on You Tube (watch it here).  Now if you aren't a gamer, (and I'm assuming you aren't) then you might be lost here.  So maybe three people watch it and he says, "a reporter from the Wall Street Journal wants to do a story about my video."  This is where I tell him about crazy people on the internet, not to speak with weirdos who leave comments on his YouTube page, you know the speech.  So he Googles the reporters name and sure enough he seems legit.
 Next thing you know a WSJ reporter comes from New York to interview him and it was on the front page of the Wall Street Journal this morning.

This is a link to the article:

 Basically it is about how pacifism is a trend in videogaming.  Whaa??  I know.  My part is where I say that he isn't even supposed to be playing violent video games and I don't want them in my house.

Just another day in the suburbs.


  1. That is wonderful! What an interesting article.

    You must be very proud of your parenting skills and of your son. Think of how encouraging this is for him to continue practicing his non-violent gaming.
