In yesterday's complaint about our daughter's prowess with a rocket launcher, did you detect a trace of pride? I sometimes hear strange explosions and small-arms fire coming from Elizabeth's computer.

Video games are a lot of nonsense, and our official stance on them reeks of a feckless disregard for structure. I would like to see them banned outright in all locations, and replaced with math problems.

"All their friends play video games, and they need to have friends."

That nice bit of logic from my wife is what turned me into the flexible, reasonable, compromising man I am today.
