RE: Workin' in Loozie Anna
I don't get it. The hotels along I-10 were ridiculous, even if you could get a room. One of the locals told us to try the casinos. Sure enough, got rooms for the crew at $49.00 a night. They are off the beaten path somewhat, but I just don't get it.
They are actually pretty boring. Apparently only electronic gamimg is allowed on the mainland - slots, video poker, etc. You have to go to the off-shore vessels to get table games. Since the only thing I like to gamble on is a good game of poker, my wallet is safe.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
