yea but the congress voted to keep me from playing hold'em online. Why? maybe because of the payouts they are getting from the casinos on the river.

I was at the resort this past weekend. About a 4 hour drive from Fort Wayne where I live. The casino was closed, but what a spendid place. The people were absolutely there to serve--even at the shops in the area not affiliated with the resort.
It was my first time to the area and I was surprised by relatively harsh life in the area versus other parts of the state. I got the sense that this project will provide many in the area who now work at the resort with the means to live a much better life than without it.
Go and check it out for yourself. You won't regret it.
