My oped on online gambling in Forbes

Link here

An excerpt:  
The case to prevent consenting adults from engaging in a game of chance, simply because it is over the internet, is the ultimate in nanny-state behavior.  With the July 4th holiday fast approaching, many Americans think about the ideals on which our country was founded.  For me, I think of freedom. 
Note 1 - I had written much more, as there were a couple iterations of this before Forbes accepted it.  More will be posted on my blog or in another oped soon.

Note 2 - for the opposite perspective, see casino owner Sheldon Adelson's oped in Forbes last week.
