a story about gambling in Indiana

Coroner: Priest drunk at time of deadly crash: Here's a DAYTON DAILY NEWS story, one element of which is gambling, in Indiana. Are the drinks free in the casino? What's the total social cost here? It seems massive.
"One hour and 11 minutes before the crash, Mentrup filled out a $1,600 win/loss ticket from the Argosy Casino in Lawrenceburg, Ind., according to the coroner. The ticket is required by the state for anyone who wins more than $1,200 gambling.
Those close to Mentrup said he frequently gambled at the Argosy."

  1. In my opinion, Gambling is something that every human being has the right to do, and politicians should keep their nosesout of what people do for entertainment or within the comfort of their own homes.
