I'll Lay The Points

Congress is trying to crack down on Internet gambling. I'm not a big gambler. Limit my losses to something like $500 a year which makes me a tiny minnow in a very large lake. But I am at a loss to understand how our government thinks it is appropriate to dictate what I do with my money. There's is no law about giving $100 to a drug addict. There's no law about burying $100 in your back yard. There's no law against investing in Enron at this very moment. So why can't I bet on Rutgers to lose a matchup against Villanova? (The most obscure sports reference I could think of).
