Bethlehem Casino Story in NY Times

From the Wednesday NY Times

BETHLEHEM, Pa., Jan. 4 — Since its coke ovens shut down for the last time in 1998, the mile-long Bethlehem Steel Corporation plant has been a rusty reminder of this small Lehigh Valley city’s proud industrial past. Trees have sprouted between the red bricks, and birds have nested in wire baskets in which steel workers once stored their belongings.

But in two years or so, the pinging of thousands of slot machines is likely to fill the eerie silence at the steelworks, which once employed 30,000 people and supplied the steel for landmarks like Rockefeller Center and notable projects like the George Washington Bridge.

I still don't like it. I see a lot of problems this is going to create.

before you know it every city in the "rust-belt" will have a casino, and then where is all the money going to come from?

Is any of the profit from this proposed casino slated to go to the State (Commonwealth) of Pennsylvania as part of a licensing agreement, like the situation in NYS?

If so, that's where your money comes from. Shadow taxation.

Beginning to wonder if all we make in this country is credit cards and slot machines...

I'm fine with this. Credit cards are part of the reason why Wilmington and Delaware in general are thriving.
