A "state as moral arbiter" update:
INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis Metro Police raided a business on the city's east side Tuesday night around 7:30 and busted an illegal poker club they had been investigating for about a year.
At the poker club patrons pay a membership fee, in addition to paying to play on any given evening. There were nine poker tables seating 11 people each. It appears the club ran games seven days a week.
Officers arrested three people and ticketed at least 60 others, ranging in age from 18 to 70, both men and women from Marion, Hancock, Hamilton and Morgan counties, possibly others.
Gambling is wrong, you see. It is an evil vice, a moral weakness. That's why the state must stamp it out wherever it appears. Unless, of course . . .
