  • The Young and the Scary

       October 30, 2007

    Halloween is tomorrow. On the eve of that scariest of nights, I'm not frightened of werewolves (ahhh wooo!) or zombies or bats (okay, I am scared of bats). No, I'm afraid of teenagers. Witness this letter to editor from DeForest (WI) high school student Karly Nehls. Karly thinks you shouldn't be playing so much online poker, and you certainly shouldn't make it your job!

    Online poker should not be as accessible as it is. Simply checking a box should not be enough to prove one's age. We need to make the age limit for online gambling 21 and it needs to be proven in a way to keep out underaged people.

    Also, there should be a maximum weekly time limit for anyone to play, around one hour a week. This will prevent addiction, and people considering online poker a job. Poker needs to become more of a pastime again, and less vocational.

    Wow, she's quite a little dictator isn't she? Sounds like Karly is ready to make the move to Madison. God knows we need another liberal who knows what's best for the rest of us, and isn't afraid to have the government force us to do it. Imagine the mischief we'd get into without people like Karly around to keep us in line.

    Is this the youth of tomorrow? Where are the rebels? Where are the fire breathers? Where are the rabble rousers? What in the world are we teaching our children (don't answer - it's too scary!)?
