    Hi Steve Drew -

    >What is the contention?

    The contention is that an increased amount of images _on television
    and in movies_ lead to an _increased amount of violence_ in real life
    _amongst those who have seen these images_.

    As you say, a non-starter. The contention ain't even wrong.

    - Wade
