This week, we got the first preliminary snapshot of how that bargain is working out, and it should give us some pause. The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission reported its first set of figures since the Maryland Live Casino in Anne Arundel County added table games.

One has only to look back in time when Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. was Maryland's governor to recall Gov. Martin O'Malley offering feigned indignation regarding slots and gambling in Maryland, and look at his posture now. When Martin runs for president of the United States sometime in the future, I hope that the voters remember this duplicity and hand him what he deserves - an overwhelming thumbs down. F.

Wanna bet? Some do, and the gambling houses of Britain are only too happy to take the money of anybody willing to plunk down a pound or two on a President Britney - or just about anything else they can think to bet on.

A 15-year-old boy admitted yesterday in Baltimore juvenile court that he accidentally shot and killed a friend during a game of Russian roulette last month. The boy quietly admitted to manslaughter and handgun possession charges in the killing of Terron Braxton, 18. Admitting to charges in juvenile court is the equivalent of pleading guilty in adult court. In exchange for admitting to manslaughter and handgun possession, prosecutors dropped a second-degree murder charge. The Sun does not report the names of children charged with crimes as juveniles.

THE BODY count was high in the latest suicide attack in Israel: 22 dead and 100 wounded Jan. 5 in twin bombings in a crowded area of south Tel Aviv. News reports noted the choreographed nature of the attack and its aftermath: the blasts, the sirens, the maimed trailing blood, the body bags, the pious in rubber gloves using spatulas to collect human remains. A gruesome routine has been established. Within Israel's pre-1967 borders, more than 300 Israelis have been killed since Palestinian violence broke out again nearly 2 1/2 years ago. Three hundred more Israelis have died in the West Bank and Gaza.
