Presidential candidate wants to repeal undecidability.

From CNET, via BB, and Ed Felten:
Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kansas) on Tuesday reintroduced the Truth in Video Game Rating Act, first proposed last September. It calls for requiring video game rating organizations to play all games "in their entirety" before issuing labels and prohibiting game developers from withholding any "hidden" game content from raters. It would also punish ratings groups that "grossly mischaracterize" any game's content.
That's right: he wants to have games played till they terminate, in order to have them certified. I guess it's time to dust off those "Pi = 22/7" legislations.
