Funny, and maybe a bit sad, if true

A long time ago, for reasons I no longer remember, I signed up for Aish.com online newsletter.  It usually has some interesting things in it, even if (maybe even especially if) you are not Jewish.

Anyway, a year or so ago, Aish produced a short video on the Dreidel, which is some sort of gambling toy top.  (I've never seen one in person in my life, so the description is a bit vague.  Sorry.)  Eventually, that video found its way to YouTube, where it apparently was at least a minor success.

Indeed, so much of a success the World Poker Tour complained, and YouTube showed their courage by yanking the World Dreidel Tour video, apparently based upon the fact that YouTube'rs can't tell the difference between a card game and a spinning top.

More information and a Petition are available here.
