Heard on the news last night (and then just read about it this morning on line) that a new casino - themed on the Wizard of Oz - is going to open east of Schenectady, NY. Not a big one but just another casino. Article also said that there was a great big one going to be constructed and opened someplace in that state. Got me to thinking. Isn't it to our advantage to see one open on every street corner? Wouldn't the competition cause the casinos to have to scramble around trying to find new ways to attract customers? Maybe they'd even put in some machines and games that had narrower profit margins. Maybe they'd increase the comping percentages. There are probably societal reasons that proliferation isn't good but, come on, with lotteries and on line and the casinos that are open, there is quite a bit of opportunity for people with an uncontrollable itch just as there are lots of bars and liquor sales for people with that kind of problem. They sell tobacco products everywhere and that crap will kill you. I think I'd like to see a major increase in competition. Probably cause a lot of turnover, but wouldn't it be fun?
