In other news, your gutters need cleaning, and someone really should wax the cat.

Update -- CNet reports that Congressman Barney Frank (D-NY) has introduced legislation to repeal the six-month old Republican ban on online gambling. "The existing legislation is an inappropriate interference on the personal freedom of Americans and this interference should be undone," Frank said.

The political counter to this, of course, will be to point out that Barney Frank is gay. (FTT apologizes for this unseemly divergence into the world of politics. We now return you to your regularly scheduled timewaste.)

Poker will jump the shark once a) everyone plays exactly the same way and success all comes down to luck and b) the cheaters and colluders take it over.

Oh wait, it already did. Nevermind.

Agreed, but... showing the kind of ignorance that makes me a consistent invite at "friendly" games... how would you identify the cheaters and colluders, other than by the quality of cement on their shoes?
