The Bear Growls: Penn National Gaming
CEO reaches an unprecedented level of casino arrogance
Las Vegas blackjack player, casino critic, and frequent BJ21.com
contributor LVBear offers his opinions on things that sometimes go

exec backs eminent domain :

executive officer of Penn National
Gaming Inc., said eminent domain would help solve the city's critical
shortage of developable land and encourage more casino companies to
come to town.

to casino interests is ridiculous. It's hard to believe that even
a casino executive could be so arrogant.
