but wanted to mention it anyway as it is gambling related. Washington residents are no longer allowed to play for real money at pokerstars, thanks to our wonderful supreme court upholding a completely ridiculous court ruling. I think horse racing is safe(at least for now, who knows what could happen) but this is just really depressing for me.
if anyone is interested in sending a letter to legislators to let them know you are opposed to the UIGEA and similar legislation, you can go here and type in your zip code and they have a nice little form letter you can send to your local representative or whoever. I think this link is only for washington state but the website is the Poker Player's Alliance website so for people from other areas you can also look around and find ways to contact rep's from your state(who knows, you could be next). sad day.
