Editorial comments: Electronic bingo

Rachel from Arley

I'm calling about the arcades I don't think they should be shut down. We know for a fact that they are paying their charities and I love going to play and so does everyone else in my family and my friends. It is a way for the elderly to get together and to associate. It gives us a place to go instead of sitting home watching four walls. I would appreciate it very much if they were left open and so would everybody else I have talked to.

What's the big deal with bingo? All these holier than thou people.

Bob from Irondale

I appreciate very much the editorial on electronic bingo. And I concur 100% that there should be an adequate contribution to charities in the event that these are allowed.
