Right after a judge in Louisiana blasted lawmakers there for passing a law trying to ban the sale of violent video games to minors when it clearly wouldn't stand up in court, New York Governor Eliot Spitzer says getting a similar law passed is one of his top legislative priorities. Now, considering that Spitzer's a lawyer and used to be the state's attorney general, you'd imagine he might be, you know, familiar with laws and the Constitution and stuff. But apparently not. Despite court after court pointing out that these laws are unconstitutional, he wants to press on. Why don't we save everybody the trouble, and just have the video-game industry estimate what their legal bill to get the law overturned will be, and just go ahead and send Spitzer the bill now? That way, the outcome will be the same, except New York taxpayers won't have to watch Spitzer and the state's legislators waste their time and money in passing the bill.
