National Harbor, just outside of our nation's capital, is a wonderful place for day-trippers from Baltimore ("Vegas on the Potomac? Some see it as a sure bet," May 29). I have been there several times and I'm sure that others from the area will eventually discover what is has to offer. What National Harbor does not need is casino gambling.
Maryland's current law calls for five casinos. Two locations are currently open, with one at Arundel Mills opening on June 6. We do not need a sixth location. Already, the East Coast is dotted with casinos in Atlantic City, New York, Delaware and Pennsylvania with at least three in the Philadelphia area. Some, especially in Atlantic City, have met with mixed success.
