Better Bookie Service

Being a longtime sports bettor and onetime bookie, I took interest in “My Bookie Says, ‘Meet Me at Arby’s” (Cover Story, January 5). Overall, it’s a good account of the small-time bettor. The only problem I have is, the story leads one to believe that this guy is driving from North Park to Oceanside to collect or pay on small amounts ($30, $25, $15) of money. What’s that about? He should find another bookie that will carry small amounts over to the next week.

Why would anyone use a bookie in San Diego for sports bets? Spend a few dollars, get a passport card, go to Tijuana.
