The attorney general of New York has ordered a halt to betting by New York residents with fantasy sports companies, DraftKings and FanDuel, because the games are illegal gambling under state law.

Shocking. Next thing you know, somebody is going to claim those slot machines at Southland and Oaklawn are gambling devices, not electronic games of skill.

Say, don't I hear ads for those fantasy football wagers on Arkansas radio every morning?
