Sure Mr. Newell, it was cute when you showed up yesterday to pat their youthful idealism on the head and explain how the real world works, but that came off like Nixon talking football with Vietnam War demonstrators at the White House.

Imagine what happens if this sit-in is successful. The conversation of three generations at a Thanksgiving table, not far in the future:

"Stopped a war."

"What about you, dad?"

"Got a video game published."
