    Where's all the people, who feel its their calling, to tell people how to spend their money.

    Horse racing is booooooring. And I haven't won even one dollar on my occasional Powerball ticket since they changed the odds to make the huge jackpots even bigger - so I just quit playing. Plus they raised the price of a ticket to $2. No wonder lottery revenue is falling.

    The only thing worth playing in a casino is blackjack, but it's hard to even find a game in an Oklahoma casino. I have no use for all the flashing lights and noise on modern "gaming" machines, but I have a cool 1940s mechanical 25¢ "one-armed bandit" in my game room. It's the kind that has three wheels full of bells, oranges, plums, lemons and so forth, and pays two quarters if you get a cherry on the left wheel. Plus bigger rewards for other combinations. Now THAT's fun!

    The bad news is that it fills up with quarters and needs to be emptied occasionally. The good news is that I get to keep the quarters.
