"I'm from a casino." "Good enough, let's go."

The signage & merchandise better be in comic sans.

One minor quibble, PD. Any particular reason you're using a file shot from last century? Are all staff photographers currently caught in the nefarious clutches of Gamblor?

American growth industries = prisons, casinos, muslim hating

Ricky Shambles said...

OMG that picture is so old. WTF?

Also: We're gonna get our Cinci casino before you will! Na na na na! And Harrah's has their fingers in our pie, so you know it's all gonna be on the level.

Honestly, I was hoping for Cleveland that they would turn that douchepit-turned-rapenest The Flats into something with a little more life than Keanu Reeves' career.

MRMacrum said...

Wow. Another reason to not visit Cleveland. And here I thought all of the reasons had been used up.

Graves, you swine!

Like you need another vice?

On the bright side, maybe they can get Famous Ray's for the food court?



David Barber said...

Catchy tune to listen to whilst looking at 2 rhino's making out. ;-)

Where are the American Indians?

Randal Graves said...

lisa, the farseeing entrepreneur will find a way to successfully combine all three.

ricky, yeah? But you guys still have the Bengals. Wait. You guys still have the Reds. Wait.

We suck.

mrmacrum, watch it. We still have that single, centuries-old cannon.

tengrain, what am I gonna use to buy some chips, out-of-date textbooks?

david, can never go wrong with a little FNM. I don't speak Deutsch so no clue what the fuck Patton's singing.

dr. zaius, rounded up in Jacobs Field!

According to Okjimm the casinos are a great help to the reservations up around his place so who knows, maybe your city will be helped too. Seems like all anybody wants to do is hope like hell they can get rich quick and then not have to pay taxes anymore.

Are you sure that's Faith No More? God that song sucks, sorry.

Some how the words "Cleveland Strip" just don't have the same effect as "Vegas Strip". But neither does "honest south Carolina politician" .

Susan Tiner said...

I kind of miss Marge gambling.

susan said...

Great idea 10 years too late. Ahh, the good old days when everyone had their personal barrista.

Demeur said...

What no Indians? What's a casino without Indians.

S.W. Anderson said...

Like Lisa said. Expect it to create a limited number of jobs, some revenue for city government, some of that offset by increased law enforcement costs, and beyond that suck money out of the community like a giant Oreck.

sunshine said...

We have a casino on the reservation just outside of our city.
It has been good for the people of that rez as their standard of living is much better than it was.
It's been good for my husband too because more people in town means more business for us!

Of course, there is always a downside... and we know what those are.

Is that downtown Cleveland?

Beautiful old office buildings just begging to be turned into lofts.

TomCat said...

Cleveland is a wonderful town to pass through. ;-)

Do you want your old QB back? ;-)
