WiseAss Thinkers

Something got me thinking a bit today. Well, duh, this is WiseAss Thinkers, so I’m always thinking. However, what piqued my interest today was not so much the fact of some humorous encounter, nor was it the fact of a story or amusing anecdote I might have heard.

Perspective: Gangland

There was a computer game that came out awhile back called Gangland. It was – I would guess – one that we all knew wouln’t be that good but might at least provide a few hours of distraction for a little bit or maybe another couple of hours or so.
