Family Council, Tom Cotton oppose Internet gambling. PS: Ark. already has it

The Family Council, the right-wing religious group, distributed a statement today lauding Sen. Tom Cotton for sponsoring a bill that supposedly would stop "predatory Internet gambling."

The Family Council uses the opportunity to armpit the current campaign for three new casinos in Arkansas by making the claim that it would somehow open the door to Internet gambling.

One small note about Internet gambling. It is already available in Arkansas, with approval of the Arkansas legislature. You may wager on races around the world if you set up an account with Oaklawn Anywhere. Credit cards are accepted. As close as your smart phone. Southland, the dog track in West Memphis, also offers off-track betting.

I'm sure the Family Council and Tom Cotton would say that's different.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
