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 â€œYOU ARE NOT GAMBLING.â€
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.
