Pennsylvania Sells a Little More of Its Soul

State passes an expanded gaming law.

My father once said that society is on the precipice when it has to resort to legalizing gaming as a way to save itself and its finances. Great, so people who can't afford it will now lose money to help pay for state programs that will subsidize them precisely because they don't have enough money to live on. I applaud the courageous legislators who voted against the bill.

Mark Twain was right -- no honest man rests easily when the legislature is in session.
