Daily Poll: Pokemon Go, Yes or No?

The Daily Catch - published on 07/11/16

Elizabeth Scalia shared a fun Pokemon Go story yesterday about a man who almost got in trouble with the cops over the new phone game:

Turning I see two sketchy looking dudes on a bench in the dark. I must have walked right past them…One of them waves, “My man, check over by the blue truck over there we got an onyx earlier…” Then the cop shows up.

As a millennial who fancies himself a gamer, your correspondent remembers his mother telling him to turn off that game and go outside to get some sun. If you’ve been out in a public place this weekend then you’ve probably seen more young people walking around than usual wandering around playing this game. Is this just a fad or will the streets be forever littered with poke-hopefuls trying to catch them all? What do you think?
