A Republican senator Wednesday proposed banning computer games in
federal government offices and requiring a person, rather than a
machine, to answer the telephone. Sen. Lauch Faircloth, R-N.C., said
he introduced a bill called the "Responsive Government Act" because of
suggestions from constituents "frustrated with the federal government
not always being responsive." Faircloth proposed the computer game ban
after his staff took the senator on a tour of his web site and he saw
how easy it was to jump from games back to work on the computer. For
