Point of View: Saving the horse racing industry

Point of View is about bringing many diverse issues to the forefront and discussing them. You may not sense a theme from week to week, which is what I’m hoping for.  I will be all over the place.  Not all topics will be equally important, but they will all be worth discussing.  Last week was about our homeless situation, today is about horse racing.  No relation between the two, but both need discussion.
