More good news for casino opponents

The premise of this Kyle Alspach article in the Brockton Enterprise is odd: the economic crisis makes the Middleborough casino proposed by the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe less likely, and the construction of commercial, non-Indian casinos more likely.

Alspach bases his reporting mainly on pro-casino sources — the Rev. Richard McGowan of Boston College and Clyde Barrow of UMass Dartmouth — and that makes this hard to parse as well.

Nevertheless, the story stands as further evidence that a casino will never be built in Middleborough. As if you had any doubts.

    And even more good news Dan. The US Supreme Court has DENIED the request of the Kickapoo Tribe in Texas to force the state into a class III gambling compact. The Mashpee through their mouth pieces at the Liberty Square Group have repeatedly said they would try and force the Commonwealth into a compact. Well, the Supremes let the lower court ruling stand. States have sovereignty right too.
