Maryland Round-Up

A good idea.

A bad idea.

Agreed, Steve. I hope they pass the amendment and bring early voting to a referendum next year. It'll pass with flying colors when the people actually vote on it.

And the lottery, well, we probably shouldn't really have in the first place. Expanded gambling is how the state has managed to pay for a lot of new spending over the past 2 or 3 decades, and clearly the poor and working class are the ones who pay for it. We started with one drawing a week, and now we have Pick 3, Pick 4, Pick 5, Keno, PowerBall, all of the card games, you name it. Selling the State Lottery to a private corporation will divest the state of the ability to directly regulate what it does, which I think is certainly not in our best interest.
