Yay! More gambling!

Why make hard budget decisions when you can just legalize slot machines, right, state of Pennsylvania? I've always been torn on the subject, because I lurrrrve gambling (I consider my gambling problem to be I don't get to gamble often enough), but I'm not an idiot (despite popular opinion) and fully aware of the social ills associated with too much access to this sort of thing. Also, this slot-machines-in-racetracks way of going about it just strikes me as bullshit; if you're going to do it, open a fucking casino. With a poker parlor.

I'm wary of the cost-benefit analysis here; would I have voted for a property tax decrease knowning lives will be ruined as a result? Sigh, probably.
