There are better ways to get tourist dollars

Posted: Wednesday, February 16, 2000

I appreciate Patrick Harman's humorous reply to what he termed my ``excellent letter'' on HB 182. First, I'll promote him to Patrick ``Chairman of the Bored'' Harman, and say ``you're welcome'' for providing at least one minute of his Warhol-mandated 15 minutes of fame. Next, I reiterate that any proposal to spread the sugar-coated poison of gambling, such as HB 182, should suffer the same fate as the black beard I once had - keelhauled and then forced to walk the plank. I do agree with Patrick that we should get some of those tourism dollars, but there are better methods than an electronic mugging via video lottery terminals. That is why I was in favor of the head tax. Finally, if I satirically mentioned that I once saw a parrot on Rep. Kott's shoulder, would that make this letter a parrot-y?
