High Noon: Is Casino Good Or Bad?

Eagle Eye: While I am on the side of the Tribe in their dispute with Benewah county, I still have a problem with the manner that the Tribe generates all of its profits. Generating millions of dollars from gambling profits from alot of people that cant afford to be throwing their money away is an issue for me. I understand that no one is forcing these people to gamble the grocery money away but I am not a gambling fan. Yes, the Tribe does do some good things. But I dont think we should turn a blind eye to the negative impact that gambling has on some people.

Question: Eagle Eye brings up a great point. I know two respected women in the community whose lives have been destroyed by a gambling addiction contracted at the Coeur d’Alene Casino. Do you consider the Coeur d’Alene Casino to be a good thing or bad thing for the area?
