All That Tax Money....Gone!
- Illinois' 10th casino opened in Des Plaines today after years of legal and regulatory fights over its gambling license -- and the result was so successful that casino operators would like people to stay away ... at least for now.
The traffic jam earlier had local police warning people to steer clear of the area if they can.
Police said traffic was at a standstill from drivers heading to the casino, with the area near River Road and Devon Avenue jammed up, especially southbound on River from Howard Street, which is north of Touhy Avenue, police said. They expected the situation to continue tonight.
Come to think of it, Rahm is probably cursing Quinn right about now, too.
