And with it will come increased crime, increased social problems, and ruined lives. Is a casino really worth the social cost to society? Why not bring honest jobs to the area?

gambling is a SIN. Im willin to wager 2 to 1 that Ohioans will see the EVILNESS of this. Furthermore odds are 1000 to 1 that its not consititutional, plus your more likely to get a Royal Flush versus four of a kind that the govenor will support this.

They should have brought casinos into Ohio years ago, before every surrounding state had them. Too much competition now. Even Northfield and Thistledown aren't doing gangbusters. But, someone is making a fortune on those little pull apart tickets at the VFW.
