      but as woman in her 60s, I'm upset by graphic images of violence. I rarely watch violence in films or on television and mostly brought up my now 30-something daughters without television. I believe violence is trivialized by cartoon images of blood and guns.

      The message itself had impact;, I listened without the sound and it was very effective.  The guns and little amoebas of blood seemed shallow and insensitive.

      The only time we had tv was when I decided to get cable so we could watch that new network, CNN, and learn what was going on with Bush One and Iraq. Having come of age during the years of the Vietnam war, the sanitized, propagandized coverage appalled me.  We ended our cable service after little more than a month.

      For me guns and blood are real, concrete things, not graphic or computerized images, not tools of war and their consequences that exist somewhere off screen.
