I look forward to the day when all gambling is legal in this no-fun state. Though this is a limited approval, I feel it's the best way so move forward. Next poker rooms will be allowed, then slots in taverns.
My friends and I gamble all the time. We choose to bet on Football, Baseball, Basketball, Nascar, golf and bowling. Hell, I bet $50 that the national anthem of the 2009 superbowl would be over 2 minutes and 3 seconds - and won. Oh how she warbled! It would be nice to be able to get firm lines on these events - we need a local sport book.
I just got back from Vegas and am going out again in April. If a local casino opens, I'll gamble locally.
It looks like others agree with my approval of Issue 3. http://www.toledoblade.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20091025/NEWS24/91...
By the way - - what's up with the local rag? ? ? I remember when we rolled-back the smoking ban and they never reported that polls showed that we were winning that issue. They are still anti-gambling, but are reporting that polls indicate that the pro-gambling issue is going to be approved. How unlike them. Have they embraced journalistic integrity ? ? ?
