Don't Bet On It

The Cincinnati casino won't happen. Why? Because it's all about the Benjamins. True, I have nothing to back up this conspiracy [which would make me guilty of irresponsible journalism], but I'm sure someone could prove this true:

1) The Learn and Earn Group [who want casinos everywhere in Ohio EXCEPT Cincinnati] knows that having two similar issues on the ballot is confusing to voter. Confusion usually leads to a "no" vote. They want to sacrifice a Cincinnati casino for statewide gambling.

2) Now why wasn't Cincinnati include in the original Learn and Earn petition? Because the folks at Argosy are willing to pay whatever it takes to protect their business. A Cincinnati casino would render Argosy useless.

Money: the world's most powerful language.
