The on-line gambling ban ("Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act" or UIGEA) imposed by congress last year is in trouble (in my opinion). The World Trade Organization is looking to fine the US for about $100 Billion for trade treaty violations. The US has already been found guilty. We can look for a federal judge to find a reason to strike down the law on a technicality very soon. That would get the conservatives out of this mess without having to take any action that would upset their base.

It looks like we are almost there.
