Great article on Dungeons and Dragons in todays Boston Globe. I never played D&D but alot of my best guy friends did. There is much truth in what the author, Peter Berbergal, says about the people who played it. They were smart, witty, clever, and a bit off the beaten path. What marbles and other "brain games" did for generations past, he argues D&D did for his generation. Todays smart kids will find something equally fascinating, I am sure. No reason to be overly concerned about the plethora of video games, etc.
