Hi dear readers,

I’m really excited to announce my latest writing adventure—a blog!  You can find it here: juliagabrick.squarespace.com.  I’m going to do something for it every day, so the site will develop, I promise.

So please go take a look and feel free to give me feedback.   I’d love to hear any post suggestions or expansion ideas you may have.  Also, photos.  I’m notoriously short on them.  If you have any you’d like me to use and obviously credit you for, let’s discuss! Thanks for reading!

There were two main arguments about the issue: those who said the California law limited free speech and others who believed kids should not be exposed to the violent games.  We gave our readers those options or the chance to explain another opinion in a poll.  Read it all here:
