When your bookie has osteoparosis

A blog called West Side Slant brings us the latest in news from the senior citizen community:

Acting on an anonymous tip, armed agents raided the Lake Elsinore Elks Lodge and found an envelope containing $50.00, which was to be paid to the winner of an impromptu Monday Night Football pool. Margaret Hamblin, a 73 year-old great-grandmother, and 39 year-old volunteer waitress Cari Gardner both pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges of operating an illegal gambling operation.
I think the rule of thumb for judges should be something like, if your big gambling kingpin is 73-YEARS-OLD she's not much of a danger to society.
