No to the video games but yes to a Casino, but not in underground Atlanta. Maybe on the northern side of Buckhead. The old GM plant in Doraville would be a very accessible location with Marta being right next door. A real Casino would open up jobs and bring in revenue for the state, but a video one would not bring in near as much. Folks who like to gamble like to hold real cards not virtual ones.

Most Georgians see the crooked way Atlanta is being managed by criminals and prefer no gambling to be in Atlanta. Atlanta management that cannot operate MARTA on a sound enough basis to keep it in the black, even though it is heavily subsidized by gov't money will not be able to run any type of gambling. I will write my legislator to keep gambling out of the hands of Atlanta's crooks. The lottery was passed to allow for the HOPE Schollarship to help Georgia students, and now Atlanta Public Schools has rampant cheating. Atlanta can't be trusted to do anything honest.
