"The day after the story, poker machines stopped taking the cards," said Kravitz, a 70-year-old retired tax examiner from Brooklyn. "Now I have to play the machines with lousy odds and hope to keep enough money to play poker. Oh, well, nothing lasts forever."

Boo hoo hoo for you.

Or you can choose not to gamble and move on with your life as a retiree.  Which gives you more time to sit in a rocking chair, drink a bottle of cutty sark and see how many people get red light tickets on the corner in front of your house

Taking advantage of the poor's desire to not be poor, making them even MORE poor: "good business".

The poor using the cards to make a little money: "OMG THAT'S CHEATING!!!"

If we give poor people ways to be less poor, then we can't shame them for being lazy and therefore, poor.

Oh man, why can't they just take one of the millions of shovel-ready jobs that Obama has created for them!?!?

If you're relying on a casino for a meager living, i'd call this ban a very well-earned wake-up call...
