Regarding the Aug. 16 Metro article “Stakes are mounting for Md. casinos ” :

When will the politicians in Virginia take their heads out of the sand? While our northern neighbor lures Virginians to its casinos, we just raise our tolls, making the roads for the wealthy only.

Does it make any sense to watch our dollars go to other states? How long can our politicians continue to ignore other revenue streams?
