April Fool’s for fools

If you’re like me, you’ve got no patience for people who send out emails with fantastically untrue stories on April Fool’s Day, thinking that this is some kind of great joke. Even worse are the alternative newspapers and webloggers who do this crap. I don’t know why, but it’s really stupid.

Then, of course, no one can read anything without wondering whether it’s all a gag or not. So in lieu of a major post today (and, honestly, because I’m a bit pre-occupied with a few other projects), here’s 5 gaming-related stories that are, to the best of my knowledge, absolutely true…although I had my doubts about the first one:

Addicted to gambling? Step inside the casino

Police charge 26 in Texas Hold-‘Em game

Former principal pleads guilty to theft

Investors wild for Wynn resort (this is a good one)

Ontario man on EI after quitting casino job because of second-hand smoke

Once again, as far as I know these are all legitimate news stories, although the ad on the last story was a little over the top.
