The lottery’s hidden cost



Dear Editor:

I feel there is a social cost of the Maine State Lottery not reflected in the glamorous advertisements on television. That social cost is people who are constantly broke and always trying to borrow money from other people.

The something for nothing mentality of the Maine State Lottery is a farce and a sham. The only place where nothing comes before something is in the dictionary.
