Breaking news in The Charlotte Observer as it reports online that the judge has dismissed the case brought by opponents of the North Carolina lottery.
There's a little more..
The Charlotte Observer yesterday printed a stunner saying that the lottery targeted low income individuals. The Observer's ability to state the obvious is a celebrated tradition, but after getting over the shock that they once again nailed the obvious, I read further and the article did give some specifics that were very troubling.
The lottery is something I haven't been able to get too interested in. I lived for 5 years in Ohio and in all 5 years probably didn't spend $100 on lottery tickets. If I'm going to throw money away I'd rather have some useless trinket to show for it. I guess I figure that gambling like alcohol, tobacco and other vices is simply something we will have to let people figure out for themselves.
Now that Charlotte has wonderful museums, hotels and a HOF....wonder when we'll get us a casino and some smut shops. (Well, we've got those...they just aren't downtown.)
