My Crimes

On June 7th, I might very well become a felon.

The Washington State Senate and House have passed an anti-online gambling bill that, as far as I can tell, makes me and any other Washtington resident who plays poker online a felon. Governor Chris Gregoire signed the bill into law on March 28th.

How this didn't make the news in some manner baffles me. But it certainly affects my life.

So will I become a patriot by knowingly violating an unjust law and possibly being arrested as a Class C felon? Or will I grudgingly buckle down and quit play poker online, only to play more poker in cardrooms, casinos, and friend's houses?

Got any suggestions, Puppeteers?
