Jack Thompson to appear at ScrewAttack Convention photo



Jack. Jackie. Wacko Jack-o. Jackie Boy. I haven't decided what I'll call him when I hang out with him in Dallas this summer. J-dogg?

Oh, what? You didn't know we were tight? Okay, we're not really hanging out. But he and I will be in the same building! Ooh! There are definite perks to this job!

Our favorite game hater will be appearing live at the ScrewAttack Gaming Convention on July 4th where he will participate in a live debate with Mark Menthentis, Joystiq's legal columnist. They'll have it out on the topic of videogame restrictions. There will also be a pre-screened Q&A panel for Thompson, so if you're going, have your questions ready. 

ScrewAttack's Craig Skistimas.:

We’re extremely excited to welcome such a controversial figure in the gaming world and provide a venue for a debate that is sure to create fireworks for many people this Fourth of July.
Fireworks indeed. So, we're going, Jackie-poo is going, Nolan Bushnell is going -- hell, everyone is going. Are you?
