If this guy confesses, he should be executed immediately. A death penalty sentence that lingers for 20 years is just a waste of time.

Hey - be glad you're getting anything. Without California, Vegas would be a ghost town.

I am sick of the government trying to "protect" us from ourselves, especially when there is such hypocrisy. Gambling is legal in most states in some form or other. Lotteries are the most insidious since they prey on the weakest and poorest among us. You can even buy lottery tickets from unsupervised machines here in California. Online poker is at least a game of skill, without the allure of the mega jackpots that draw people to lotteries.

I dont think legal online poker will even make a dent in lottery sales. Even if a lot of folks try it, they will quickly find out they are consistent losers because they dont have the skills needed. The lottery is a great equalizer, with everyone having the minute chance to hit it big.

It is laughable to think that any of these "painful" cuts and tax increases could ever happen. I wish they would though.

We couldn't even get our elected officals to let the Bush tax cuts expire only for the richest Americans. If we cant do something as relatively painless as that, how could any of these severe actions ever happen.

It is time for our leaders to do what is right for the country, and not for themselves or their party.

I live in the SF area and I think it is ridiculous to waste such a large amount of money on a suicide barrier when the state is bankrupt, the schools are in disrepair, the water system is precarious at best, and so on.

People who want to off themselves will do it. Let's stop trying to protect people from themselves. We have people throwing themselves in front of caltrain about once a month on average, and that is way more disruptive than someone jumping off a bridge.
