People Unclear On The Concept

From Wednesday's Concord Monitor:

"A possible link between the Lakes Region Greyhound Park and a five-state, $200 million illegal gambling ring has done little to blunt some lawmakers'enthusiasm for legalizing slot machines in New Hampshire".

"Two of the Belmont track's executives were indicted last week on federal money laundering charges that they transferred illegal wagers through a Concord-based business on behalf of a mob operation".

Yes, folks, we now have the Gambino Family mucking around Belmont, yet a handful of legislators still think that gambling is a splendid idea.

Brilliant.
