How many kids will go to bed hungry because mom and dad gambled the food money away? [Letter]

Years ago we had 3-digit and 4-digit gambling, and over the years Maryland has offered several ways to gamble. But now we've hit the jackpot — we have casinos ("Horseshoe says casino drew 50,000 in opening weekend," Sept. 2).

Some will spend their last dollar hoping to win big, but it's always the casino that wins.

Who benefits from all the gambling we have now? Maryland state government. It can't seem to get enough of our hard-earned money.

I dare say there are children going to bed hungry because mom or dad spent their money at the casino. But Maryland doesn't care. It just lets the money roll in
