    " We don’t doubt that getting the Lottery out of the government’s hands could make it even more successful — and profitable."

    Well, I surely do. A for-profit company must show continuous improvement in profits. That can come from increased sales which is of course the claim by the people with designs on the money intended for our seniors, but who says the market isn't already saturated, these same self-serving interests?? And we're just supposed to believe that, Bucks County Courier Times? Really?

    The Lottery is operated by the public for very good reason: it doesn't incur the overhead of a private concern, and doesn't need to continually improve earnings to attract investment dollars.

    And just in general, this editorial really grasps at straws just to find something to criticize about Kane, and it fails miserably. There's a new sheriff in town, Bucks County Times, and next we'll be digging in to why Governor Corbett didn't prosecute Sandusky. Will you be calling that a rookie mistake as well?

    I have one thing to say in Kane’s defense about the conference, which was stated by her staff as an announcement. Corbett called Kane to the carpet; he said that he wanted a quick decision on this legal matter even though Kane had a few more weeks of time left legally to study this matter. Corbett made this a public show. He should be careful of what he wishes for, because he got that which he asked for.
