Turfway Park already counting its bailout money

The gambling moguls in northern Kentucky are already counting their part of The Millionaires' Bailout, according to Pat Crowley at the Cincinnati Enquirer. Turfway, a horse track in northern Kentucky is rubbing its hands together on account of Greg Stumbo's HB-158, which would bring mechanized slots to the Kentucky horse tracks.
Turfway Park would build a $150 million free-standing casino if legislation allowing video gambling in Kentucky passes the state General Assembly this year.
Now we're just thinking out loud here, but where do poor, needy gambling moguls, who according to advocates of HB-158, are looking at having to sell their Armani suits and Italian shoes for food getting $150 million?

But at least The Millionaire's Bailout is giving these people some hope. And that's something.

Martin,

I apologize but this is not a response to your blog. I need to know if you can answer a question about your Traditional Logic text (Book I) and knew no other way to reach you. We're a homeschooling family and our 13 year old son James is struggling with Qualitative Rules for Categorical Syllogisms (Chapter 13). Once again I apologize for submitting this on your blog. Let me know if there's a better way to reach you.

I can be reached at:
