Lawmakers should have approved casino gambling years ago

July 12, 2013

The citizens of Maryland should be extremely elated over the "take" of our state's gambling casinos ("Casino take soars in June," July 6). They should also be doubly dejected over the time wasted to achieve this goal.

Years ago, former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. was elected to open these casinos, but the micro-brained, childish legislators could not permit its passage under a Republican governor. The state lost hundreds of millions of dollars as a result.

Is it really possible the electorate is deluded enough to constantly return to Annapolis representatives with a lack of intelligence as well as a complete disregard for the good of the public?
