Today's spurious headlines are all about John McCain's gambling habits and gambling connections.

There may or may not in time be some important information hidden in these missives, but we have yet to see it.

I good friend tells of the time he played craps at a Vegas table next to McCain for several hours a few years ago.

He says that the good Senator from Arizona was intent and focused and not particularly friendly.

As far as I know gambling is a legal activity in many places.

If we learn that McCain took bribes or did some other illegal and unsavoury acts, then we will have something about which we can complain and somewhere to point.

In the meantime, this kind of innuendo and silliness must go.

Yes, gambling is a legal activity - so is drinking alcoholic beverages. Some partake of both moderately, with others it becomes a compulsion and they become addicted.

From what I have read, this man is a "binge" gambler - not for mere hours, but for days at a time. Considering his anger (mis) management problem (self confessed angry outbursts), and what appears to me to be a put on/not natural soft spoken voice used in public, .....not much would surprise me about this fellow.
