Horse racing is ruined

December 28, 2009

Congratulations to all our local politicians who have done to horse racing in Maryland what Bob Irsay did to the Baltimore Colts.

The correct solution was too easy. The slots belong at the racetracks (Laurel Park, etc.) where they were intended. Tear down Pimlico (a welcome relief), build a new facility downtown with the Preakness. Install night racing and the slots. What a bonanza!

Publish the political opponents' names that they too can live in infamy along with Mr. Irsay.Stephen Buckner
