Casinos = madness?

U.S. judge decries Indian gambling in handing down drug sentenceU.S. District Court Judge William F. Downes recited a litany of Montoya's addictions, beginning with marijuana and building to almost daily meth use.

"Then the casino, the touted panacea for all that ails the reservation," Downes said. "The casino, which will cause more suffering to the tribal communities than any institution there since the U.S. Calvary.

"What madness, a casino in the heart of a reservation beset with these kinds of addictions. What madness."

Geez, does that judge really believe the casinoes are there ONLY for the Indians? Hasn't he ever heard of Montecito's Revenge?
