LIVINGSTON MANOR — The Catskill Park Coalition, a relatively new assemblage of 26 Catskill Park advocacy, not-for-profit, or special interest groups, now has a unified website to present the Catskill Mountains to the public, both the beauty of its resources and the cautions of its issues.

 Casinos often bring higher crime rates and deterioration of the communities nearby.

Interesting.  I wonder why this happens (assuming it is even true; I'll accept that the NYT didn't just make this up).

I generally don't think people should be protected against their own foolishness, nor that some people should be denied an activity because some others do not handle it well. OTOH I know that some  people have real gambling problems and do not take the needed steps to either treat themselves or arrange to get themselves banned from local casinos.

Instead of out-right bans, what else could be done to mitigate the problems associated with gambling?

What does the tragic toxic chemical spill into the drinking supply of 300,000 West Virginians tell us about the safety of New York's drinking water? Well for one thing our Federal and State regulatory protections are - how do I say this nicely? Not very adequate... At all...
