Gambling

Tweet [1]

Andy Morriss, my co-blogger over at Market Correction [2], sent this spot-on letter to the Wall Street Journal:

Sirs,

At first, when I read your headline “States give gambling a closer look” (Mar. 3) I thought you were reporting on yet another “stimulus” or “bailout” bill in which politicians played games of chance with taxpayers’ money. Hardly news – just another “dog bites man” story. Then I realized it was just a story about allowing ordinary people to risk their own money  -  now that’s a “man bites dog” story!
