Another roll of the dice in Pa.?

Pennsylvania could be preparing to take another roll of the dice.

With a new budget deadline just a few weeks away, some state leaders are looking at an old friend as a possible fix to the state's fiscal mess.

Yes, expanding legalized gambling is back on the table.

We already have the lottery, and 12 legal casinos. Now some Republicans are suggesting video gaming terminals as a new gambling cash cow for the state.

As you might expect, this is not sitting especially well with casinos, who could wind up losing customers who would be sitting in front of those terminals in their local tavern as opposed to trundling down to Harrah's on the Chester waterfront.

We deal with it on today's editorial page.
