Whatever argument you might have against a state lottery to support college scholarships, don't argue that the state shouldn't endorse gambling. As Brummett notes, the state already has legalized virtual casinos at the two tracks where people gamble on horse and dog races.
He makes a passing reference to something whose time probably has come -- end the sham and legalize casino gambling. I'd do it in Hot Springs. And maybe downtown Little Rock. And it wouldn't be monopoly casino gambling, open only to Charles Cella and friends. It would be Vegas-style, open to all comers with sufficient capital to build hotels, casinos and attendant attractions.
