Back on March 8, 2008, I embarked on a new frontier: Writing a gambling column.
We celebrated five years of poker, slots and the whole casino spectrum today in the newsroom, with a red velvet cake. (There's still a piece or two near me if you're around.)
So far, it's been an adventure, with all kinds of fascinating people (I mean, characters) and a world I never otherwise would have known.
I just want to say thanks to anyone who's ever read my stuff, called with a news tip or even just sent me a press release. You all are the best!
