Quick follow-up to my recent post on NC’s Internet gambling ban (Cognitive Dissonance? NC Legislature Bans Internet Sweepstakes).
WUNC’s reporting treasure Laura Leslie (can you tell I am a fan?), made an informal personal survey of her community’s (Garner) “Parlor Games”.
Ripping a page from the big boys (It’s Not A Spill), one “parlor” (sounds funereal) she visited was
“decorated with pictures of craps tables and roulette wheels, right next to the signs assuring you in capital letters that “YOU ARE NOT GAMBLING.”
It appears that in-spite of evidence to the contrary, as long as you post a sign ALL IN CAPS you’re good to go.
