Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

It sounds like a typically improbable spam email subject line, doesn’t it? (Or else an obvious politician-bashing assessment/joke.)

But no, for real, venerable C-SPAN broadcast unpixelated nude girlie scenes from videogame titles “The Guy Game” and “Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude” earlier this week.

Is it sweeps week for C-SPAN? No, it was just a segment from the Senate’s briefing on National Institute on Media and the Family’s “MediaWise Video Game Report Card”, complete with visual aids. I guess someone forgot the cameras were rolling, or figured the scenes wouldn’t show up too clearly (which they didn’t, but apparently they’re clear enough for a gawk-worthy RealPlayer video stream).

Congress better be careful. It doesn’t take much to bring on the FCC’s wrath these days, cable or no cable. Besides, we don’t need the Federal government levying fines on itself; it’ll only inflate the deficit.
