A Sinking Boat

The second house this year to go under in Atlantic City. This is a scenario that does not look too pretty. A once venerable establishment will soon be history. The future of gaming is now obscured with doubt. In the big crap game of business, they have just sevened-out. We will be bidding farewell to the esteemed Showboat. They have tooted their last horn with a sour note. After August 31, that will be all she wrote. from a local news story

    Gambling! So ingrained in human nature after all if we wouldn't take the gamble we'd never have left the cave! [for sure I'm still in one writing on the walls LOL ;)] Light & Love

    two down, many more to go I suppose. Soon, the entire coast line may be in trouble. I used to live on the beach, (Atlantic Ocean, myrtle beach S.C.) I would sit on my big wooden deck in a hammock and write, watching the tide get closer and closer every year. DRAMATICALLY. I moved to Michigan. THink I will read a couple more of yours tonight.

    A sad day for Atlantic City. Makes you wonder if the market is getting over saturated
