"Indeed, the rage of theorists to make constitutions a vehicle for the conveyance of their own crude, and visionary aphorisms of government, requires to be guarded against with the most unceasing vigilance."
     -- Joseph Story
     Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States
     Book III, § 1857.

Instapundit on gambling, by way of the Bennett flap:

Gambling, after all, sends the signal that the best way to get rich isn't to work long and hard, but to look for the quick score. (Even worse, that message is specifically a lie in the context of gambling, where long-term players generally wind up cleaned out.)
A counter-observation: The category "long-term players" includes casinos; they don't wind up cleaned out.
