Washington's new law banning online gambling even extends to people who write about the subject, and Seattle Times columnist Danny Westneat explores that area (possibly even breaking the law himself) in a column today.

"1984 has finally arrived," Boutte told Westneat. "I can't believe this is happening in a liberal place like Washington."
