    "Online poker won't go away any time soon, and placing artificial obstacles in its way is bad for players and worse for government, which wastes scarce resources in pointless regulatory pursuits."

    All articles in the mainstream media that highlight the issue of 'Black Friday' should be welcomed. However, I think this is a very poor article.

    He says....

    Hypocrisy: Gambling is legal in every state but two, Hawaii and Utah, and I'd wager that poker rooms are an integral feature of casinos in most of them.
    This is very misleading. He's including states that run their own lotteries. But far fewer states allow for casino-style gambling where poker rooms might exist.
