Good news. I've been looking for a job in Gettysburg for 2 years now and I still can't find one. I was supposed to get hired as a blackjack dealer at the new Casino but, well, you know what happened with that.

Really??? They are not in any way near ready for this to happen. Nothing has yet been decided and this is Feb. What do they think they are going to do with 4 million people? No places for them to stay, park or eat. Most of this should have been decided a year ago at least. If they have not already began to interview people for jobs for this thing they will never be ready when the time comes. Prepare for a real disaster with this thing. The snob noses of Gettysburg will screw this up the same way they screwed the county out of jobs with the casino. The roads in Gettysburg are falling apart and they are expecting all this extra traffic???? If yo live in Gettysburg you would be better off to go on vacation during the time of the 150th Anniversary.

Not to mention the violent street gangs and the attendant crime. You should do a search for Gettysburg Gangs on the Internet and see all of the sick sick shocking crimes that take place here. Shootings, stabbings, murders, rapes, robberies, burglaries, child molesters... I hate this GD place and I hope it gets wiped off the map by an asteroid or something.

Tourists need to beware that it is very dangerous in and around Gettysburg. There is a good chance of being shot and killed in Gettysburg. Ask Spielberg
