I think that MAine will pass it this time (Soundly defeating a proposal in the ballot- is lways a work in progress and the casino interests have patience and deep pockets).
If Maine approves casino gambling there will be a battle for the gambling dollar every bit as big as whats going on the the Mid Atlantic states. ( New Jersey had gambling for over 30 years and then Delaware and now PA and MAd) All those states have "Taken" reveniue from NJ casinos.
Im amazed that there are enogh peop,e out there who gamble so much. Most of them lose. I suppose that if people loo at the money they spend in a casino as mere "enetertainment", the saemas if theyd buy tickets to a play or some other show, then I guess I could see the whole exercise.
As it is, I just dont get it.
