I got your point, which has already been already refuted by others. But while you were assuring us we did not have to worry about some problems, you were reminding us that there was another problem too--looking more like Vegas is not a good thing.

Also--"vagrants"? I'm pretty sure that the people others have been referring to as victims of gambling are often working class folks so desperate for a break that they fall for the false promise of a big win.
