Just what Michigan needs more of - casinos. Sigh.
We have a casino in my town - the Odawa - a well-run, tasteful enterprise, as these things go. The vast majority of the customers are senior citizens, so loads of free coffee and soft drinks are always available. The entertainment/floor shows are the type you'd find at Branson, MO., not Vegas, and the cocktail waitresses (no waiters) wear fairly conservative attire.
Bottom line: The gaming industry has come up with a successful way of getting at our elders money. And, frankly, some of these lonely folks, ensconced in wheelchairs or carting oxygen tanks, don't look like they have much money.
