    I don't mean to minimize the tragedy in any way, but...

    ... the murder was organized by a man who was angry because he believed his Xbox video game system and some clothes had been stolen.

    So this apparently equates to: 4 charged in Florida killings over Xbox

    I just love how the media splashes these headlines around without a care in the world, especially when it comes to anything even remotely related to video games. Wouldn't it be equally accurate to go with this headline?

    4 charged in Florida killings over clothes
    or this one...
    4 charged in Florida killings over theft

    Too bland isn't it? Guess 'Xbox' and 'killings' will do a far better job of spreading some sensationalism and doubt and set us up for the next violent video game pullout.
