They could learn the importance of good math skills

Looking at my child's school calendar, I see that one class of students is scheduled for a field trip to Madison later this month. I presume they are going to see the legislature.

Couldn't we send them to Las Vegas instead? They would meet a better class of people. They would learn valuable skills. And they would certainly be exposed to more moral behavior.

I never saw a degenerate gambler in Las Vegas forget to say "thank you" when a free drink arrived. About how many members of the legislature can you say that?

Be honest. Would you rather have your children spend ten minutes in the sports book at Caesars or watching the Joint Finance Committee?

Yeah, I thought so.
