  1. No, no, no. This is the last place to put a casino.
    How can the City uphold this and who is to benefit? How much are the powers that be being paid to support this?
    It seems interesting to see who is involved. John Dougherty, Darrell Clarke … who else? I will wait and see if Philadelphia is continuing to deal in politics with payoffs as usual. It sure looks that way.

  2. I’m all for jobs, jobs, jobs. But where will casino goers park? Will there be FREE parking or will visitors have to pay outrageous prices?
    This enterprise will certainly benefit the City with revenue.
