    Default LA Times runs online gambling editorial

    Michael Hiltzik, a Pulitizer Prize winning columnist for the Los Angeles Times, wrote an editorial yesterday that said the U.S. Government's stance on Internet gambling is "absurd."

    Hiltzik believes that no issue "brings out America's talent for self-deception like gambling."

    From the LA Times:

    It's doubtful that Congress will act in time to put off the new regulations, especially given the more pressing issues on its plate. But next year isn't too soon for it to relearn the lesson of every attempt to enforce a morality that most people don't share. If you can't eradicate, regulate -- and take a big chunk out of the wages of sin while you're at it.

    Right. Then they lead us to the gateway of online gambling. Great to see some positive thoughts inside them and they need to write up more concerning the worldwide legality of casino.

    Legalize it, regulate it and then tax it.
