Laura Cohen, a Wall Street Journal reader, in a letter to the editor wrote, "How pitiful that people choose to spend the precious gift of time on virtual-reality games (Ref: "Is This Man Cheating on His Wife?" WSJ, Weekend Journal
). I was troubled by this story all weekend. There are so many genuine needs of the community for people with so much spare time
. Imagine what benefits could come from taking all that energy and using it to improve the world
instead of indulging in behavior that is destructive to the family."
It would be hard to find a statement with which I agree more than Laura's.
