Seriously? A Casino?
A land-based casino could be a partial solution to Chicago's financial crisis, but only if it's government-owned because City Hall has to "deal with all the repercussions of gambling," Mayor Daley said.
Three weeks ago, Daley shot down a trial balloon floated by two Chicago aldermen to build a casino and entertainment complex on the Michael Reese Hospital site once set aside for an Olympic Village.
But that doesn't mean he's slamming the door to other Chicago sites. It all depends how serious the talk is in Springfield.
