Casino Evil



To the editors:

David Moberg's article, "Daley's Crapshoot" [November 20], should be must reading for anyone that wants to understand the issues associated with the megacasino proposal.

It is fortunate that Moberg and the Reader were willing to examine the facts and the complexities of this proposal. It is likewise regrettable that others in the Chicago media and those in civic interest organizations speak in glittering generalities about the benefits of a project they have not truly analyzed.
