    I have a theory, one that I stole from John Marinacci. Marinacci was a little known character actor who shows up in mob movies and shows, and most recently went down as part of a sports gambling group in NY, as I recall. His theory -- We are all just looking for action, in gambler's parlance.

    Marinacci was a "talking head" in a documentary that I really liked, called "ALL IN: The Poker Movie". Marinacci's theory is that gambling is hardwired into Americans. We are all descendents of gamblers. People who sold everything and hopped on a boat with no real plan, who swam across a river or stowed away to get here, and then once here headed out on a series of gambles. Much of what made the country resulted from "gambles" people took, for the most part no more than a handful of generations ago.

    We can't resist, and have no desire to give it up.
    In the old days there were losers in the lottery. Now everybody has to be a winner and get a trophy. If they don't win, they blame the system.

    A moderate Muslim leader calls out Obama's unwillingness to call radical Islam "radical Islam":

    By denying that this is about Islam, “President Obama does us a disservice, because doing so deprives the Muslim community of its responsibility to fight this radical monster,” says Muslim democrat Naser Khader, a former member of the Danish Parliament....“By doing that, the West fails to understand that the Muslims will be the most crucial soldiers to fight this Islamic terrorism.” Mr. Khader calls for a revolution in Islam that would reinterpret the sacred texts in a way that is “compatible with modernity.”

    I'm surprised there isn't a more effective movement to end the lotteries. From the left, it's obviously just an ugly type of regressive revenue collection. From the right, the idea of "striking it rich" undermines their whole (for the most part, delusional) association of wealth as a reward for hard work.

    Right on the interstate! I must confess I've stopped at one (or two) a few times in the past.

    Believe it or not, I'm all for casinos and responsible entertainment. And if a state wants to generate revenue, rather than harassing the populace with folks that have a magic badge, they can put some skin in the game. Where I see the problem existing is the forcing of a monopoly on doing so. There's nothing wrong with private casinos, especially if they're audited by firms such as KPMG, Ernst & Young, or any of those others. As for who is participating, caveat emptor.

    Who audits the auditors?
