No videogames without good grades

There's a GameStop in Texas where the store owner won't let kids buy videogames unless an adult confirms that child has good grades.

Check it out

This is guy should be flown to Washington on Monday to address a joint session of Congress.

His brief remarks should be covered like a State of the Union address.

In short, Brandon Scott is a national hero. Amazing how EVERYONE knows he is right -- that gaming can directly take time from schooling -- but gutless parents have been unwilling to drop the hammer.

Of course Gamestop is equally gutless, and has suspended Scott. What a surprise.

He's actually a store manager, not a store owner, as the stores are all corporately owned.

But in any event, he should be applauded for supporting his principles in making sure that kids have good grades before they start gaming.

Keep up the good work!
