And Governor Quinn has taken steps to address his primary concern about a few new casino/slots locations, somehow ensuring that there will be the highest level of gambling integrity with all these machines spread throughout so many bars in so many towns ...

Terry, it is very laughable!  If and when the Illinois tracks ever get slots the revenue they will receive is a far cry away from what they would have received back 15 years ago or so.  There are only so many slot/video gaming machines you can put in one state before they are only diluting themselves, and they are very close to that point in our state.  Racing will have to fine a way to survive on its own to feet in Illinois or go bye bye.

Nice picture of the Legion Hall in Urbana. Do you think they'll run a shuttle between that and the OTB in Champaign, or simply have printed directions available at the program booth?
