Keep thinking those happy thoughts about your property taxes declining, mine never did in the years i lived in La, in fact they went up. It won't be the wealthy who primarily visit the casino. Sure the infrastructure may benefit somewhat. In post Katrina was it the population who were up and running in its aftermath, don't think so, it was the Mississippi/La casinos. I reinterate, nothing wrong with casinos, but to think it's the golden calf is a mistake. It's the easy way to generate income. Why don't we invest in education so our children and grandchildren can somehow compete with the rest of the world which may already be ahead of us, i.e. engineering, science, etc. Why don't we allocate funds for prenatal healthcare, for example every dollar spent saves approimately 9 dollars. Not a bad investment. So much for my soapbox.
