Slots Foes Produce a Top 10 List
StopSlotsMaryland, a grass-roots group opposed to Gov. Martin O'Malley's plan to expand gambling, is trying to employ humor as lobbying tactic.
Members of the group yesterday were distributing a David Letterman-style "Top Ten Excuses To Approve Slots In Maryland."
Among the more notable entries:
-- Takes more money from poor people faster than the lottery does.
-- Allows University of Maryland Medical School to become the world leader in studies of gambling addiction.
-- What are special sessions for, if not to do something stupid?
-- Slots aren't morally bankrupt anymore!
The "bankrupt" reference is a direct shot at O'Malley (D), who once said slots are a "morally bankrupt way to fund education." He may not see the humor here.
