lay 'em off, or turn 'em out, but please, no Crack-Keno

'Crack-Keno' has revitalized the Michigan Lottery. Is Ohio next? - Cleveland Metro News – The Latest Breaking News, Photos and Stories from The Plain Dealer -- The governor faces some tough choices, which he seems to want to avoid by using Crack-Keno to get into the pockets, or aprons, of the waiters, waitresses, bar owners, and bartenders of The Great State of Ohio. It would be harder to lay off the excess employees and cut the fat, or sell off the car fleet and have them drive to work in their own cars like everybody else; I'd like to suggest starting with the planning and administrative staffs at ODOT, especially the shills who put on those public forums, the dog-and-pony shows where people get the look and feel of having something to say about their community's future. He could also keep them employed but make them earn their keep, by "turning them out" (as it were) to do something productive, for which they are suited by training or experience or birthright. But, no, he presses for gambling to help balance the books.

Heck. Turn them out. Turn them all out.
