It can't happen here

It can't happen here

The gamblers thought it was an empty threat. Politicians talked about the casinos, of course, as sure as they talked about corruption and alcoholism. It didn't mean that vice was going anywhere.

But on Tuesday night, finally and anticlimactically, the games drew to an end -- a last spin of the roulette; the final blackjack hand; one more jangle at the slots.

Dang, too bad this is not Pennsylvania, but Russia. And I'll bet their casinos aren't even ugly like ours.
