Utah Newspaper Awards Video Game Bill Sponsor a “Buffalo Chip”

The Provo Daily Herald has unkind words for Utah Rep. Scott Wyatt, sponsor of a video game bill blocked yesterday by a House committee. The paper’s editorial staff apparently awards "beehives" and "buffalo chips" for what it deems worthy of kudos or condemnation. Here’s what the Daily Herald had to say about Rep. Wyatt:

Buffalo Chip to Rep. Scott Wyatt for trying to pull the plug on video games for kids. Other states have already been there and done that — and have been slapped down by the courts. House Bill 50 would add violent video games to the list of materials deemed harmful to minors, and thus bar them from being sold to young buyers. The Logan Republican is ignoring warnings from Attorney General Mark Shurtleff that similar laws in eight states have been found unconstitutional. Wyatt’s colleagues need to tell him that it’s "game over" for this bill before a judge does.

Now if GP could just figure out what the "beehive" represents…
