It's Raining Casinos and Slot Machines

It doesn't rain, it pours. As soon as there's one legal slot machine in the state of Massachusetts, there will be at least two full-scale casinos, one of them in Martha's Vineyard! Sheesh, if they were so worried about a few wind mills poking out of the ocean, miles and miles away... I wonder what they'll think about a massively massive resort? The Vineyard would never be the same.

(Here's some food for thought: where do you house the thousands of employees that casino would have in the summer? Where would all the tourists spend their money? At casino restaurants, or Vineyard restaurants?)

If our State Treasurer has his way, there will be even more - you know, we need to beat those Indian tribes to the punch! Casinos galore. What will Boston's strip be? That's one way to revitalize Downtown Crossing.

If Mitt were more prescient, he would have been against casino gambling, because it appears as if Massachusetts is about to become the Las Vegas of casino gambling. Yikes. Let's not win this jack pot.
