    Sell Satellite TV? Like Poker? Guns? VMC? Rick Rahim?
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...122201846.html

    "The Texas Hold 'Em game in Great Falls last week was so rich and so enterprising that Fairfax County police said it could well have been in Las Vegas.

    Sixty people showed up with wads of money at the home of Tariq "Rick" Rahim, president and founder of VMC Satellite Inc., who, in his spare time, plays in professional poker tournaments."

    "More than a dozen Fairfax police officers raided the house Dec. 15 and interviewed each player twice. Afterward, Rahim and Robert A. Hoffman Jr., 39, a two-year member of the police force in the tiny town of Haymarket, were arrested, police said yesterday."

    "Rahim, 37, was charged with operating an illegal gambling enterprise and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon."

    "Police also were concerned about the weapons at the game. Rahim was carrying a gun, Hoffman had two, and two other players had firearms. Some of the weapons were carried legally."

    "Rahim reveals a little bit about himself on his personal Web site, which featured photos of numerous cars, including Hummers and Lamborghinis."

    Ah ha ha!

    "Rahim, 37, was charged with operating an illegal gambling enterprise and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon."
    I wonder what felony he was convicted of? Fraud?

    Actually, it makes me think I can STOP wondering, about the reason they performed so poorly compared to the sat. place I used before I ran VMC. I never would have gotten rid of the original, but they closed their program.
