A dangerous bailout!

Kids are apparently bailing out from school, and the World of Warcraft (WOW) may have something to do with it!  WOW!!

According to the FCC:
You might find it alarming that one of the top reasons for college drop-outs in the U.S. is online gaming addiction—such as World of Warcraft—which is played by 11 million individuals worldwide.
I like a couple of video games on our Sony PS3 (which, it seems, is selling less this year due to the high price point and the economic downturn). My favorite is "Winning Eleven" which is a soccer game. I could not have imagined being able to get crazy playing soccer with fingers!! I can see why addiction to video games or the Internet isn't a stretch - more people online more hours in the day! Now, Sony just jumped into the virtual worlds fray with Sony Home!

I guess with things left unchecked, the kids will just stay HOME!
