Don't look now, but casinos in Maryland are one step closer to reality. The Maryland State Senate voted 28-14 to expand gambling in The Old Line State, as reported upon in this article.
By my addition, 28 plus 14 equals 42. Mr Griffith's Social Studies class from 7th grade tells me that Maryland has 47 State Senators. So what the hell were the other five Senators doing during this very important vote? I think it's fairly irresponsible not to go on the record on this very serious issue.
So now, as Maryland General Assembly Session 2012-B goes on, the gambling legislation goes to the house, where passage faces tougher sailing, but somehow I suspect that it's going to get done.
