For the past year or so it has been nearly impossible to find "real" news.....TV, Radio, newspapers, social media seem to be intent on reporting on the most outrageous news articles and celebrity coverage. Just saying......there are everyday terrific news about regular people and causes....maybe too boring for the mass readers, etc. Your thoughts people?...

TheSymbiote

I think yes because some games are educational for kids. I know that Minecraft would not be educational, but people use it for math and geometry. Some schools are doing that now. Let's bring a new era to school education!...
