Come on, a fool and his money are soon parted, and gaming offers Californians some budget relief paid for by such fools. Why should Nevada get all of California's money?

The propositions impact Southern California and I have to ask, "Do we really care about anything south of the Santa Barbara wine country?"

Take the money!

As for the HOUSE on the Hill? Contra Costa County will never run out of stucco, so get over it!

Thank you, Frank, for your rich humor.

The issues of the gaming proposals to Californians are not restricted to Southern California. The propositions are models for a sequence of gaming issues that, at their core, are economic and environmental issues. The economics is a MAJOR lobby in our State for gaming and entertainment will bridge into communities and neighborhoods. The environmental issues are the models they set for other industries to avoid conforming to our future well-being. Beyond any global warming issues are land use for various purposes that do not comply with our current codes.

Please study and decide,
