Anyone tempted to fill the coffers of our state by making gambling more convenient, might listen to the chilling tale of former OSU football great, Art Schlichter, who, in the '80s became a compulsive gambler.  
He ruined his college career and one year in the major leagues, spent 10 years in prison, lost his family, was  divorced, lost his job and reputation.  
No one knows when they or their neighbor may become a compulsive gambler. Freedom to vote carries with it an obligation to think of individuals' betterment, as well as money for our treasury.
