Gambling writers encouraged to take up knitting, water polo

Posted by Kim Peterson at 12:45 PM

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.

State officials armed with the new law have targeted a Bellingham man named Todd Boutte who reviews online gambling sites, saying his Web page was illegal, according to Westneat.

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