Tiny Little Rant: No lotto
Thu, May 14, 2009 (midnight)
We’re not sure what’s ticking us off more—the fact that Gov. Jim Gibbons can’t remember whether he’s for or against state lotteries, or the fact that he now appears to support them.
Look, we know the economy is bad, and we’re all for exploring ways of making money. But a lottery would be a complete disaster, creating an even bigger strain on the group that’s being hit by this recession more than any other: the poor. Furthermore, all that crap about its being for the schools is a lie. Just ask California.
