At the same time he wants government to grow, he paradoxically has seen too much to not be skeptical when it does. A complex individual to be sure. Today he said "Jerry Cox was right" about claims that the lottery would expand government-sponsored gambling far beyond the weekly scratch numbers game that House Speaker Robbie Wills and others once implied.
