What gives on casino?


The argument was made that Gov. Jay Inslee stood up for tribal sovereignty and self-determination. The Spokane Tribe’s casino would be 1.5 miles from Fairchild Air Force Base to lure airmen, and the Constitution needs amending, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs needs morality.

Give me a break. A new casino to compete with Northern Quest is probably the root cause of this issue, and the 1.5-mile argument shows the lack of understanding how Boeing has delivered thousands of aircraft from downtown Renton among high-rises, schools and a populace far exceeding that of Airway Heights.

So what gives?
