People are shocked? When the hell has there ever been money in this state? Look @ all the casinos they're building. They have them now in Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Shreveport, New Orleans, etc -- why the hell would they drive here if they can just go there to gamble in their own state? I guess the Florida ppl still go to the coast casinos but even then they have Indian casinos down there now so why come up here?
