Letter: Gambling Is Wrong, Period

To the Editor:

If a relative were involved with activities detrimental to herself and to the community, such as the sale of drugs, prostitution or providing alcohol to underage minors, would you, as a responsible adult, support such activities because “a neighbor is doing it”? If you got 30 percent, or even 40 percent, of the proceeds, would you provide support?

Some things, such as casino gambling, are clearly wrong, even if your budget is dependent on the ill-gotten earnings. I urge Gov. Maggie Hassan to please reconsider her support for the proposed casino and revise her budget accordingly.
