This is an argumentative essay against the idea of legalizing gambling in the town of Youngstown, Ohio. The writer takes the reader on a short history of the town and exposes the gangster activity that has always thrived within the town. The writer uses this as a springboard to argue that gambling becoming legal would only encourage a repeat of such mob activity.

From the Paper:

"As the residents of Youngstown debate the issue of legalized gambling, there are many forces being exerted on both sides of the issue. Youngstown, Ohio has been economically deprived for some time and the city government as well as community advocates is scrambling to re-vitalize the area. When advocates of legalized gambling look at cities across the nation who have allowed it, they see improved economics through jobs and tourism as well as money for the school system being obtained. They wave these examples as proof that Youngstown would benefit from legalized gambling. What they don't publicize or address is the seedy side of the issue."
