If someone wants to go to a casino and throw money away by gambling and taking cash advances, it doesn't bother me - at least not today.
I decided to stop to pick up a bottle of wine - a $10 Bordeaux that I'm amazed doesn't cost two or three times as much.* I knew what I wanted, and could have been in and out of the store in 45 seconds. I had to wait quite a while, though, since there was a big line of people wanting Mega Millions tickets. I wasn't very happy about that.
I'd rather people go to casinos to throw away their money, rather than create long lines. Also, lottery tickets pay out much less per dollar spent than many casino games do, so in that sense can be more of a "stupid tax".
*I don't tell the employees that, of course.
