Sumner County takes a ride

We Kansans are just so darned bamboozled by gambling. We can't decide exactly what our relationship with it is. We're cautiously for it. We're a little afraid of it. We enjoy it. We think we might go to hell if we do it. We need the economic development. We fear its addictiveness. We want to keep it at arms' length. We squabble over the revenue. We dither and dabble and deliberate and desire.

For six years Sumner County has wrangled with the issue. Meanwhile, the Indians are leap-frogging right over the wranglers and threatening to beat 'em to the draw up in Park City.

Well, whatever you think about gambling the biggest problem is our ability to talk anything to death. Being wishy washy is what lets others beat us to the punch almost every time. Be that the Kansas legislature, the city and county councils, or school board. Sometimes you just have to make a decision and live with the consequences.
