Double down

The race is on!

When Ohio's four casinos open, Indiana may see its gambling revenue shrink, News and Tribune reported.

Indiana fiscal analysts predict the casinos will cut a $200 million to $300 million annual loss in gross gaming revenues at the state's 13 casinos. Indiana’s gaming revenues have fallen for the past two year.

Can't stand to lose that revenue, of course, so we'll have to get Hoosiers to gamble even more, whether that's with more casinos or despicable  "you could get rich" advertising. Then Michigan will have to crank up the action, which will spur Illinois on, and let's not forget about Kentucky. If officials work at it, they could make this the sleaziest, most corrupt patch of the whole country. Make us all proud!

While we're at it, we should add state taxes to booze and cigarettes and run ads urging people to drink and smoke more. Pretty soon, the stupid will be paying for all government services and the rest of us can enjoy the fruits of their self-destruction.
