A State in Denial

Surprise, surprise.  Genting New York, LLC, the group which will operate the racino at Aqueduct Racetrack has appeared in front of a legislative body in New York,  The reason why?  To discuss a possible constitutional ammendment to allow table games at New York  racinos.

Who didn't see this coming?  My guess is within two years there will be table games at Yonkers and Aqueduct and another dagger in the heart of Atlantic City.  But two years from now, unless the Meadowlands is closed, Atlantic City casinos and state officials will still be arguing how a casino at the Meadowlands will hurt Atlantic City interests; this as the tumbling tumbleweeds move down the Broadwalk.  In the meanwhile, the state will continue cutting services to the public and needy in the State as services provided to New Jersey residents will continue to shrink.  Some good may come out of it as they can tear down those bankrupt casinos and build a NASCAR track in Atlantic City, allowing NASCAR to make their entry into New Jersey.

Isn't it amazing how everybody but government officials in New Jersey can see what is happening?

What are the chances of Yonkers and The Big A getting their wish at first asking?
