Howard Stutz’s Nov. 24 column (“Look out, Net bets, Adelson’s after you”) employed a medieval practice used to avoid confronting unpopular positions. When you can’t defend the message, attack the messenger. The truth is I am not alone in my opposition to Internet gambling. While a majority of Americans are in favor of “live” casino gaming, recent surveys show that more than 70 percent disapprove of Internet gambling. I don’t understand how Mr. Stutz can suggest that my “philosophy is simple;” that if I have no reason to participate in online gaming, then I’m going to “shut down the game for everyone else.” That statement is simply untrue.
