After 29 year ban, Mass. town voting on whether to allow videogames in public places

I’ve been to Marshfield. It is a quaint seaside, South Shore town in Massachusetts with lobster and golden retrievers. It does not, however, have videogames in public. That’s why after 29 years, they’re voting to see if they’d like to reinstate them in restaurants and other public places.

Here’s a choice quote from one of the pro-ban folks:

“It would definitely change the type of entertainment we offer,” said Faith Jean, who supports the video game ban. “We’re a coastal town. Now are we an amusement coastal town or are we fishing and swimming and sailing?”

Um? Both?
