Here’s the headline from WTXL TV in Florida: Florida man jailed after losing $100 in card game. Now, I know that playing poker for money in some places is against the law, but is THAT the reason the guy is in the slammer? The first paragraph clarifies things:

The loser of a card game is in jail after deputies say he tried to rob and shoot the man who had just won $100.

Ah, Bach!

Makes all the more case for allowing online gambling. It’s hard to believe that New Jersey is leading the way in THAT.
