Yes on 75

There's a ballot measure in Oregon this election, measure 75, to build a non-indian casino in the area (Portland, maybe? I'm not sure). Now, I used to work at a casino. At that time, it was the only job available to me. I would not have had a job without that casino. So I'm kind of partial to this measure, since a new casino would mean new jobs. And being a non-indian casino, it will be paying taxes to Oregon. While I never did understand why people would spend money on games that are rigged for them to lose, I understand it gives them entertainment, and casinos tend to have other entertainment as well. Osceola's casino was the center of its entertainment; it made an otherwise unremarkable little Iowa town into a place to go for concerts, craps, and crab meat (on Fridays and Saturdays at least), as well as other good food. It'd be different in a big city, I know, but I think I'm going to vote yes on 75.

Gods, I wish I were being paid to say that. :-)

Remind me to check later, but I think the location is the old dog track./ Which is out near where we went *way* out on Sandy to try for the call center job a year or so back.
