Md. better off with table games
Voting "Yes" on Question 7 to legalize table games such as poker in a few well-chosen casinos will be doing a favor for all residents of Maryland. Gov. Martin O'Malley has promised publicly on television that tax proceeds from such games will be spent to improve education in Maryland — a promise he must keep or ruin his political career. Heavy advertising which opposes Question 7 is financed not by those interested in the quality of Maryland schools, but from casinos in neighboring states that want all the money for themselves.
