Friday afternoon Musings
The internet poker world is aflame after the mega e-wallet netteller closed its business to US customers as the main middleman between them and the internet poker sites. I am very concerned as to how this will effect the long term profits of my business, but still remain optimistic that a solution will be worked out. Of course, if our main lobbyists have been the PPA, we probably have been doing ourselves a huge disservice. Everyone knows that not enough was done to stop the anti-gambling forces, but this post on twoplustwo really upset me.
In other news, Michael J. Totten, ie: the best independent journalist out there, writes about his travels to the Hezbollah heartland in Lebanon.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen. The once great artist Cat Stevens helps me enjoy and afternoon coffee and smoke with this lovely song. How disappointing to know, he'd rather have me dead nowadays than chilling to his music. I guess I don't feel too bad about the songs I have of his on my computer (that I obviously paid top dollar for...)
