Let's see. If the General Assembly allows us to have a gambling referendum, and we vote to approve a casino, that means we can start building by . . . Oh, wait. Gov. Daniels says not so fast there, boys:
I think we've gone as far as we should go. If we're not at saturation, we're approaching it. Now, here come other states more fiscally desperate than we are trying to get in the game. So, no expansion would make any sense to me financially or otherwise.
That's another important no, almost as important as the one from David Long, president pro-tem of the Senate. Almost the only possible way for Fort Wayne to get a casino without "expanding" gambling is for it to nab one of the Gary licenses if one is turned back into the state. Any bets? Think Mayor Henry will finally give all this up? Me, either.
