In high school we had a math teacher who spent every weekend in Atlantic City. He had a system, you see. It was going to make him rich one day. It never did, of course, and when he retired from teaching he also retired from gambling.
“Those guys never lose,” he told us.
So here’s to you, Mr. Ritchie. Today is your day. The day New Jersey governor Jon Corzine shut down the casinos. Losses are expected to be top $20 million for every day the casinos remain closed.
