Albany City Council Remains Firm

Berkeley's Daily Planet announces the vote by Albany's city council to oppose plans for the huge casino proposed nearby in San Pablo. The article also details some of the payoffs for those who are behind the scheme (and here's a hint- they aren't members of any tribe):
In exchange for running Casino San Pablo, the four managing partners will receive a quarter of the net profit.

Those opposed to the casino include the owners and operators of Bay Area cardrooms, which, along with the state lottery and charity bingo games, offered the only forms of gambling allowed in California on non-tribal lands.

The next moves are in the hands of the legislature and of the U.S. Senate Indian Affairs Committee, where Chair John McCain is holding hearings on the legality of legislation that gave the Lyttons a retroactive title to the land after the cutoff date that allowed automatic entitlement to a casino.

Have you found any good online casinos? I've found a few... buy egold
buy egold is my new favorite online casino - they have good games and they are a reputable egold casino. I like egold as it's under the radar in many ways and it's a nice way to keep my winnings hidden from uncle sam.
buy egold has instant payouts, is safe, secure, and runs an honest game.
In short, I never felt like they were trying to hustle me.

Like your blog a lot.

Craps is the fastest - and certainly the loudest - game in the casino. With the big, colorful table, chips flying everywhere and players yelling, it's exiting to watch and exciting to play. Craps also has the one of the lowest house edges against you of any casino game, but only if you
make the right bets. More about online gambling links
