Airport slots, literally

slot-machines.jpgWe always thought slots at airports meant landing and takeoff rights, but there’s a guy in Maryland with a different idea. The State is moving to allow slot machines, the so-called one-armed bandits, at several spots, including race tracks and possibly a shopping mall. Now one guy, a state delegate named Eric Bromwell wants to put the machines in the state-owned BWI airport. He wants to put 3,000 slot machines behind the security gates so that people who are just waiting around for their flights will have something to do other than buy $7 hamburgers or browse at yet another leather-goods store. The governor says he’s skeptical, but Bromwell told a local television station that his is a good idea because the slots would be in high-security area. We don’t follow that. Incidentally, his bill is number H. Bill 777, but he says that’s just coincidental. Will it fly?
