Casino deal reached

According to the Star Tribune, a casino deal has been reached. I'll believe it when I see it, though. There are still a lot of hurdles for this to go over before we will be seeing more slots in the Twin Cities. This has to pass the legislature, there are constitutional questions...this isn't over by a long shot.

Why don't they use the Sears Building on East Lake Street in south Minneapolis for a casino? Transfer the land into reservation status, like the Fond du Lacs did with their bingo hall in downtown Duluth a few years ago, then re-build it.
Redevelopment would spread up and down both Lake Street and Chicago Avenue, thus benefitting Basim Sabri and his Palestinian investors; the ancillary vice providers are already in the neighborhood, and their Caucasian Suburban customers are well acquainted with the exits off 35W.
All the seniors hopping on the buses out to Treasure Island could stay closer to home.
The training school for the casino card dealers at Franklin & Cedar is close by.
Everybody wins - as long as we disregard the shame of exploiting the addicted and accelerating the ruin of our nation.
When our grandparents outlawed this stuff, they were on to something.

The Sears building is already being re-developed.

Put it in the Mall Of America, where I won't have to see it. ;)

Now we get to play Casino-NIMBY, the funnest crap shoot of all.
