Senator Ritchie's survey on casino gambling will show a majority opposed and that will fit with the position she needs to take with the people of substance, virtue and vision.
There really isn't a fair way to grant non-Indian casinos as a handful of rich businessmen will get the franchise, and small mom and pops will be in the cold...Of course, that's the natural order of things in Oneida County where the Indians reign.
Just allow slots in convenience stores, bars and fraternal clubs and the children will get the education they deserve.
Of course, that's a facetious remark and in no way reflects my true feelings.
Anyway, allowing such things would require and amendment to the State Constitution and that doesn't happen overnight....
