PS.  A proposition to expand casino gambling just passed in the state of New York yesterday.  The only (very well-funded) advertising on the issue came from the pro camp, and they sugar-coated it saying they would create jobs, lower property taxes and proceeds would go towards education.  BULL SHIT!  People have such short memories and are so freaking gullible.  They said the exact same thing in the early ’80s about the lottery.  With today’s jackpots every kid in the state should be getting a beautiful free ride, but our schools are always strapped for funding.  Governor Cuomo pushed for it, so he is either not all that bright, or he is a crook.  Guess which one I think he is.   —   YUR

(I’m not sure if Flip said this as a generality, or soon after he was diagnosed with liver cancer.  Either way, there’s truth in it.  Life is short, compadres.  Be well, do good . . . and live fully, my friends.)   —   YUR
