Xoff said it better than I could:
Rabid radio talker Charlie Sykes devoted more than half of his morning show railing on Summerfest for asking the Army to shut down a virtual killing game, urging listeners to call those wimpy Summerfest folks and complain.
Actually, Summerfest needs to be thanked and congratulated for doing the right thing. It is never easy to publicly take a stand and reverse an earlier decision — not to mention facing down the military.
Please take a minute to call Summerfest at 414-273–2680. They need some support.
Update: Money talks more than any right-wing comedian. Summerfest has
clarified revised their position a bit, saying that they asked the Army to change the game it so that you can shoot still targets, but not people. To be sure, that’s better than it was. But let’s hear it for Charlie Sykes and the Overreaction Orchestra!
