If the Connecticut Airport Authority has its way, Bradley will become the first airport in the nation to open a casino on premises, not across the street, but alongside the terminals, or maybe right smack in a terminal building itself.
Folks, there is nothing positive about what a casino can bring to this city or county except what the Catawba Indians and possibly outside investors might gain from emptying pockets of those who will suffer greatly.
Gov. Mike Pence (R), who would be negotiating with the tribe, has said he opposes an 'expansion' of gaming in a state where revenues from existing facilities have fallen 17 percent in the last five fiscal years.
The tribe dropped plans to build a casino on an Indian allotment but the state of Oklahoma is trying to keep the dispute alive by asking the justices to review a case that's very similar to one they recently decided.
