|Amen Burnside - nice to know I'm not totally alone in that feeling. There are folks, including many on this board, that fought it because they thought it somehow affected historic preservation. I disagree, but I have no qualms with them.
What needs to be understood is the issue brought out alot of what I call "born-again" preservationists - people who oppose gambling for religious or "moral" reasons and suddenly discovered historical preservation, and used it, because it met their agenda. You will never hear from these people again in regards to preservation issues. These are the people I have contempt for. They were nowhere to be found when other major preservation issues were being fought. The fact that there won't be a casino in GB doesn't bother me, I'm a thousand miles away. If there would have been one, it wouldn't have bothered me. The pure adulterated hypocrisy of many who fought against it under false pretenses bothers the hell out of me.
