Vice Squad

So many progressive social issues have come up for scrutiny across the nation in the past year or so, you'd find it hard to believe there's a Teabagger problem.
But here's an issue I'm not sure I can get behind: Massachussets is considering legalizing gambling.
I don't have a problem with gambling, per se (nor do I have a gambling problem.) I think the occasional foray into taking a chance with something hones our edges, makes us sit up and notice life a little bit.
I'm just not sure the state ought to be sanctioning it.
