    Nice article on the hobby. It's always good to hear of our hobby written as thriving vs. dying...

    Nice story. Not an AP story though, unless AP snagged it from WSJ (see byline). Prob digital first media running it in its various papers. AP did run a similar story lately though.

    When they start writing articles that don't say pinball is coming back from the dead, that is when it will be back. But it will always be a fringe hobby. A fantastically fun fringe hobby, but pretty out there.

    Either way, it was carried in quite a few regional/local papers. Nice to see it getting some attention.
