C'mon lucky seven! Massy needs a new source of revenue - I suppose the libertarian in me should say "if people want to gamble, let 'em gamble." I just don't want it going on a couple miles from my house. But Massachusetts is seeking new taxes for all sorts of goodies, and the nickel slots and potato salad buffets are coming to a Western Massachusetts town somewhere.
Frankly, I don't think nearby Palmer has the infrastructure to handle the traffic of a new casino. There would have to some serious road work. Springfield seems better equipped with a major downtown bus station to bring Granny into town to blow her Social Security check.
