A New Casino?.... Or is it Wal-Mart?

Admittedly, I will probably not visit the new casino, nor view it as some kind of savior for anything. But having said this, I know many will and I do hope that it can add some positive component to downtown.

The renovation of the Higbee Building has brought back an historic gem with new opulence. It appears grand and exudes class.

It deserves to be visited by those who will make an effort to demonstrate a little self respect and pay homage to such a storied venue--and new event--in patronizing the casino--by not showing up looking like a complete slob.

I am not saying one needs to invest in a $1,000 suit, but how about at least making an attempt to look and smell as though you have not crawled out from under a rock?

I shudder to think of such a spectacular place, peopled with what looks more like a scene awaiting the opening of a new Wal-Mart!

Perhaps somewhat of a dress code might weed out some of the folks who probably cannot afford to be spending their last dime gambling in the first place. This is not about vanity, rather, about self respect.

Adding one in Hammond and relocating the Gary casino would also strengthen the gambling industry in the region in case Illinois changes its gambling laws, McDermott said. If the changes happen, casinos will appear nearby in Illinois and pull revenues from Northwest Indiana. holdem poker
