Thomas F. McDonough left out a few pertinent details in his comments about former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s failure to keep his promise to bring slots to Maryland ("Ehrlich foes are making up facts to bolster O'Malley," Readers respond, April 14). Mr. Ehrlich was a one issue candidate who found a good gimmick, slots, and ran with it.
You would think therefore, that the Ehrlich people would have been ready with a clear, cogent, well organized bill. Sadly, such was not the case. The Ehrlich slots bill was an embarrassingly confusing mess not understood by anyone, Democrat or Republican, and it gave a disproportionate share of the revenue to the wealthy track owners who had made significant contributions to Mr. Ehrlich's campaign.
