It's a sad state of affairs when 3 men in a room decide the highly overtaxed citizens of this corrupt state will pay for years of theft and mismanagement and give them a 25 year guarentee besides. This deal should have been perfomance based with 3 year reviews and anytime that the results did not generate revenue to offset taxpayers comitment a new entity WOULD be chosen to run the business. Taxpayers should not have to subsidize the gambling industry. If they cannot make it pay then get rid of them.
