Don't indict online gamblers, tax them instead

March 05, 2012

I'm not a gambler so I couldn't care less, but in my opinion the government is wasting a lot of money going after Calvin Ayre and others involved in Internet gambling ("U.S. grand jury in Md. indicts founder of Web gambling site," Feb. 29).

Why not legalize and regulate online sports gambling and casino games and reap the billions in taxes it will generate? Seems like a no brainer to me.
