1. Bob Riley Continues His Anti-Gambling
Charade
By Roger Shuler of Legal Schnauzer

Alabama Governor Bob Riley persists on positioning himself as an
anti-gambling crusader, despite a mountain of evidence that Riley's
administration actually has been fueled by gambling interests.

The latest news has Riley forming a task force, led by retired
Jefferson County district attorney David Barber, to crack down on
illegal gambling.

Riley's move comes roughly two weeks after he had announced 12.5
percent proration in the state's education budget. Some legislators
have proposed expanding gambling and levying state taxes to help
offset budget cuts.
