    A more accurate term Is a "stupidity tax."

    Sometimes I fantasize that the only organizations allowed to run commercial gambling........ would be public schools. That way gambling addicts could, at least, give back a little bit of the moneys they take from their families. Of course this would be a bad idea in reality. It...
