In just two week, statewide reporters, TV journalists,
radio talk show hosts, and national media came out of the woodwork to write about this
little lawsuit challenging the notion that more gambling was good for the economy. We've
been collecting the news stories and editorials that have popped up all over Ohio.
We've placed many of them on our website so you can catch
up on all the news quickly and free of charge. In the midst of all this flurry an
interesting discovery has come to light. As we travel Ohio talking about the mismatch
between gambling and good government something quite surprising keeps happening. All kinds
of people stand up and applaud. Republicans, Democrats, editorial writers, business
leaders, and everyday Ohio folks cheer together saying its about time somebody finally
stood up and told the truth about the Ohio lottery and legalized gambling.
What a wonderful, wonderful surprise.
If you're one of those that's been applauding - thank you.
