The recent Question 7 commentary by
The rich corporations that build these casinos and sell people a false dream of wealth will certainly benefit by taking our money. The government who rakes in the revenue will also benefit by taxing these private facilities. A casino in Baltimore will result in nothing more than a shift of money from the poorest to the wealthiest.
If the mayor wishes to the turn the city into even more of a slum, then installing a casino in the middle of it will most certainly be a step in the right direction. Of course, the mayor will not be one of those desperate gamblers spending their fortune late into the night. She will probably be busy attending the hottest concert at the 1st Mariner Arena, free of charge.
