Don't Play Poker in South Carolina

More SWAT team over-reach, via Radley Balko.

I can't tell for sure from this whether or not private poker games are ever okay in SC (though it seems unwise to risk it) but it does appear that playing any type of game at all "on the Sabbath day" is forbidden, a law I'm pretty sure I must have broken on tour a time or two; but then again, maybe chess, Civilization, and nethack don't count.

Man, this is a scary country.
