Mark Rauterkus is reporting that companies on the north shore are opposing casinos on the North Shore. This is great news for me, I don’t want to see any casinos there. There is a bike trail that I bike on allot, also I like going there for the 4th of July fireworks. And I don’t like the idea of the casinos there since it will attract crime, and I don’t want to get robbed by the guy that has a gambling addition that either needs more money for the next fix, or does not want to tell his wife he just lost that months rent.
Also I want to ask the city what are they going to do to protect people that have to live near, or pass by the crime magnets, aka the casinos. I hope we can stall the casinos until we can replace Ed Rendell as Governor, and get some one in the office that will put a stop to this madness.
Finally I wonder how many lives will be ruined by these. I will do my part to drive them out even after/if they come to Pittsburgh, I WILL NOT GO to them, I will not spend any money there, I will not go to business that support them, I will vote with my wallet by not letting them get my hard earned money.
Finally remember that gambling and lotto’s are just a tax on those that can not do math, or a tax on the stupid.
And don’t get me started on the ethical issues of gambling on how it is bad stewardship of ones money.

  1. There is still a North Shore proposal in the mix — but it is more by the West End Bridge. ??

    The South Side proposal hit the light of day recently with Franco Harris as a selling point too. ??

  2. Thanks for the update. I do need to contact you soon about other stuff.
