Mini-Rumination: Casinos at Racetracks

Casinos at racetracks?  Really?

Today’s Philadelphia Inquirer reports that construction has begun on a new casino to be located at the Pocono Downs racetrack.  This is something Pennsylvania does:  it puts casinos at racetracks.

Is there something about the honesty and integrity of the horse racing industry that’s supposed to assure us that table games at racetrack-based casinos won’t be fixed?

After all, we’re all pretty confident that horse racing is an honest industry, right?
