Quote of the Day

Keith Whyte of the National Council on Problem Gambling, on the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act:

I think the best way to sum up this bill is that it makes illegal what is illegal and it legalizes what is legal ... So, really, the prohibition of this bill -- it's illegal to gamble on the Internet in states where it illegal to gamble on the Internet. And in states where it is legal or that might want to legalize it, it's perfectly allowable.

I found the discussion on the Newshour on this Act very interesting - you can read the transcript or watch it online here.
