I dont see why Nevada should not have a
lottery, you can gamble on everything else. Howard Finstein
No, Las Vegas has enough ways to take you money, so
there is no reason for another form of gambling. LInda L.
Giving Las Vegas a lottery would be like giving Micheal Jackson
another facelift-its not really necessary and may not enhance anything
but it may be forthcoming regardless. A lottery in Nevada will not add
to state or business coffers. It will only take from the excellent
gambling establishments already created. Why bother? Keith Adey

Absolutely. Why should local resident's not join in on the excitement
of Mega millons being offered all over the country. The money raised
from the lottery will go to supporting the homeless, and children who
need surgery but can't afford it. Image all the children that will
receive treatment, sight, corrective surgery that would not be possible
if funds were not raised through lotteries. Its a Win-Win for everyone,
especially the politicians who can boast about the good they are doing.

Absolutely! Since I can't seem to win in California, then I could try
my luck in Nevada!! The more chances, the better, I say!

I live in Atlanta, where the
lottery supports the local school system, so if it helps the kids, then
yes. Plus, considering the gambling situation in Nevada, it just seems
to fit. Mark Owens Atlanta, Ga.
is the ultimate sucker's bet and Nevadans are too smart to lap at this
lollipop. Why offer the one lousy bet almost everyone can get back home?
Let's lose the lottery -- it's lame. Ken Harwood Tulsa,
No. Lotteries are best left for those states whose politicians
lack the courage to initiate casino gaming, and who would rather
practice some pathetic form of denial that this is, in fact, a form of
legalized gambling. Tim Lui-Kwan Honolulu, Hawaii
wouldn't be interested in the indoor sking,but Las Vegas brings people
from all over the world. I think there would be lots of people who would
love it. Stephen Goodwin Sedalia.Mo
