Taking a gamble

Do you get the Oriental Trading Company catalog, full of party favors and other tiny little geegaws?

Then you may find this Wall Street Journal piece fascinating: It's all about how the onetime head of that company blew $127 million gambling, and is now blaming the casinos for letting him gamble while allegedly drunk and drugged. Yikes.

I suspect that if most of us had $127 million to spend, we could find something other than gambling to do with it.

Terry Watanabe is a graduate of my high school in Omaha. They used to have his picture hanging in the lunch room...I wonder if it's still there!
