This casino stuff is ridiculous. Every passing day, it becomes even more patently obvious that the House and Senate just haven't done their homework, and more and more people are catching on. This is not about what's best for the state, that's for sure.
Even if I weren't dead set against this thing, my patience would be wearing thin. The right thing to do is for the Senate and House to take a step back and actually study this thing, especially the costs, as doing so would solve a lot of problems one way or the other. Quite frankly, I'm tired of this issue sucking up all the air on Beacon Hill and preventing the good work that needs to be done on a whole bunch of other, important work from getting done -- work that is in many ways more important than the grand spectacle that is the casino lobby's reverse Robin Hood. Don't we have more important things to be doing?
