Editorial: Gambling Is Never Enough (May 10, 2008) Re “Gambling Is Never Enough” (editorial, May 10):
In arguing against expanding gambling in New York, you acknowledge that a “minority of players” are problem gamblers. You then oppose increasing gaming availability, in part because you fear increased availability will increase the problem.
That is not the case. Despite the opening of hundreds of new casinos across the country in recent years, the prevalence of pathological gambling has not increased.
