Landslide against Massachusetts casinos

I'm so accustomed to Beacon Hill being in conflict with my beliefs, I've pretty much given up voting in local elections. Finally something went right in this state: "House defeats governor's casino bill"

The House voted 108-46 this evening to defeat a proposal to license resort casinos in Massachusetts, rejecting one of Governor Deval Patrick’s cornerstone economic initiatives.
Whew! Not even close. House speaker Salvatore DiMasi deserves credit for blocking Governor Deval Patrick's plan for "easy money."
