Let me see if I have this straight.
A guy gets loaded at Caesars Indiana, borrows $75,000 from the casino, loses it, and refuses to repay the debt....
...and then he sues them?
Or how about this: A guy who thinks the world should take him as seriously as he takes himself defaces the Federal Courthouse here with a truck full of driveway sealer to "make a point," gets arrested...
...and his supporters wail because a judge wants to keep him in jail?
Let's review for a moment.
In the casino case: Two primary activities go on in a casino -- gambling and drinking. This is no secret.
Drinking can often make you stupid. This is also not a bulletin.
But if you drink too much and do something stupid -- like lose 75 grand you don't have - that's your fault. Not the casino's.
And when it comes to this misguided temper tantrum:
Free speech doesn't include the right to vandalize. And when you do something moronic like this - and already have a record of similar stupid moves in the past -- no one should be surprised when you're required to face the music.
I'll admit - both these guys do have their share of problems. But if they really want to find someone to blame for their troubles, I'd suggest they both take a peek into a mirror.
I'm Bill Lamb, and that's my...Point of View.
