One look at Atlantic City and you can tell that gambling doesn't bring prosperity to the locals.  Where do those profits go?

My vast experience with casinos is based on a visit to Reno.  I put a nickel in a slot and got seven nickels back.  I quit while I was ahead and never gambled again.

Some years ago Disney wanted to build a theme park in Manassas.  They said it would be wonderful, so people could look at their plastic robots made to look like soldiers on their fake phony bogus indoor battlefield.  Just think, they said, all that history right before your very eyes!

Some people, like florists, thought it was a good idea.  But the general public just laughed them out of town.  Disney gave up and went to France, where they got a warmer welcome.
