Online Poker Indictments

I haven't been playing or thinking much about poker recently, but there is some big news in the poker world today.

If this were just a cultural decision made for the societal good, I would be upset but ultimately okay with it from a political standpoint. It will be interesting to see what we learn in the coming weeks about the sort of political maneuverings that might have been going on behind the scenes. Brick and mortar casinos in particular might have some incentive to try to take down the online poker sites (now that those sites have done their job in creating so many new poker players fifteen years).
