Didn't forget...just hadn't got there yet - going slow to maximize the fun.

The silent factor on the proposed casino in BA has been awakened. It is quoted they have accumulated up to 800 signatures on a petition to let the building of it to proceed.   Those interested in the growth of the city and the lure of bring new money into the growing city overshadowing the negatives Native Americans have endured for near two centuries in their promised land “as long as the winds blow and the waters flow“.

Tulsa World.  I've seen the article.  He speaks the truth this time.  I'll dig it up for you in a moment.

How many signatures do they need to get something else to happen?

Hoss: just sent the bill to the casino’s address.

Just as Custer’s last stand at the Little Big Horn against the Indian Nations the casino will be build.   Corporate America has only to salt the mine with gold dust to change the opinions of governmental functions.  When the citizens see the gold dust their minds will change.

If by pawn, you mean willing partner that aggressively courted the mafia to train them in gambling, then yeah, pawns....as for negative, well it depends on ones perspective, I guess.  Lottery, gambling, horse racing,....governmental complicity.

Are you speaking of the governmental departments of the city that are suppose look out for the citizens welfare.  Well, the out-of-state grand jury sure wasted the taxpayers funds when they failed to recommend that their indictments be sent to a out-of-state district court.

No one else made a guess, so I guess you win the 10 points!  Congratulations!!!


For another 10 - anyone...what family are the tomato and potato from - the common name, not Solanaceae?  Too big a clue?
And why wouldn't you want to eat the namesake plant?


I actually know this one, but only because I was reading an article on taking care of all of the peppers growing in my garden the other day Cheesy
