The Moral Danger of Gambling

 One of the most trusted men in America once expressed the way he saw the danger of gambling to our nation. In the program, "The Dice are Loaded," Walter Cronkite indicated that the collapse of moral resistance against gambling is among the worst things that could happen in the United States. Cronkite argued that he believed it is the destruction of "who we are as Americans."

Those words came to mind this week when I read the news stories about the Eastern Band of Cherokee officially breaking ground for their second casino near Murphy, North Carolina.
