Interesting conversation and relevant to our present age. Bringing in an expert such as a person who works with those who are addicted to gambling would also be Interesting and helpful. In the late 1970s it came up for the people of Florida to vote on whether to start a state lottery with proceeds going to the school system. My husband spoke out against this and got in trouble with teachers. Of course only a small portion ended up benefiting schools.
