We already have a lottery

Posted By on Sat, Jun 14, 2008 at 6:17 AM

So writes John Brummett about the state Racing Commission's laughable approval of keno at state racinos as a "game of skill." It's a lottery. Not the Brummett minds gambling at the Southland and Oaklawn racinos.

People are going to gamble. They were gambling already at those locations. Both facilities are important to their regional economies.

It's the charade, the hypocrisy and the emergence of the wink and nod as our official state signals - that's what galls. We pretend to be pristine, like a prostitute with a see-through, quick-release chastity belt.
