The storm before the calm
This week's fireworks in the House of Representatives concerning the casino gambling amendment made for great drama and big headlines, but in the end it's all anti-climactic.
Given all the dissent and hard feelings in the house, and the battles between the casino interests and the equine interests, this bill will be lucky to pass the House by the required margin to get the amendment on the ballot.
And even if it does, it will go nowhere in the Senate.
The fireworks are pretty now, but the grand finale is going to be a real dud.
