Bradford Cummings has a piece at the Paulick Report about a constitutional amendment in Kentucky to legalize slot machines at horse tracks.

While not the reason I resigned, the slot machine issue is a perfect example of why my career will likely never head back in the direction of party politics. (That sound you just heard was the last shred of my political career flushing down the toilet…I sure hope we can turn the racing industry around!)

Part of the party game, Republican and Democratic, is to create a platform and get the entire machine to walk in the same direction while beating the same drum. I do not say this to disparage the process. To a certain extent, this sort of singular focus is necessary to get anything done politically or otherwise. Have you ever attempted to get a consensus among 30 people, 10 people or even you and your spouse? The concept of majority rules definitely serves its purpose. But it can also be incredibly destructive for those who feel passionately about an important issue.

And if you don’t mind putting up with some lascivious ads, you can read Nate Silver‘s Esquire piece on how casinos can’t save state budgets. Who knows what slots will do for the horse industry, though. Has Ellis Park closed yet?
