While surfing my way through the feeds in my news aggregator this morning a horrendous image flashed before my eyes with the heading "Another beheading" and it came from Bernie Goldbach's blog.
I was horrified. Depsite moving on from the page as fast as I could my heart was racing and my palms became sweaty. I had all sorts of confusing thoughts racing through my head. I did not want to see the image, I felt betrayed that it had popped into my consciousness without me being able to prevent it. I wondered what the hell Bernie was playing at.
When I decided to blog about this incident I felt I had to go to Bernie's blog just to check.
It was an image from the computer game Half Life!
What are we doing giving our kids these games?
