Incompents With Impunity


“It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.”  Thomas Sowell

Despite this excellent advice, horse racing is regulated by people who do not answer for their mistakes.  They are not even required to acknowledge or explain them.  This lack of supervision lies at the feet of thirty- eight Governors who have more important things to attend to.  “This block of people have little or no effect on my ability to be re-elected”.  This industry’s stakeholders, despite having large memberships in numerous organizations,  have not been able to generate a sufficient effort to bring attention to this problem.  Can anyone recall an incident where a sitting Governor reprimanded his appointee(s) on a state racing commision, let alone fire one?  As a result “Incompetents With Impunity” continue to regulate (?) the business.
