Skinwalkers couldn't stop casino

Fire Rock to open Nov. 19

Delegate:  Skinwalkers got scared, could not stop projectThe Navajo Nation’s first casino will open Wednesday on a grand scale despite tales of skinwalkers and uranium in the six acres of fill dirt, as well as issues of smoking vs. non-smoking, according to Navajo Gaming Enterprise CEO Bob Winter.

Several months ago, the Fire Rock Casino appeared beset by obstacles, some of which Churchrock Delegate Ernest Yazzie attributed to witchcraft, but, he said last week, “We didn’t let no skinwalkers stop us.” In fact, after Yazzie brought up the matter, the problems started to subside, he said. “I think they got scared.”

Sounds like a horror movie idea, with the skinwalkers and radioactive mutants walking around.

You'll see those kinds of creatures lurking about that casino as soon as it opens - they're known as retirees.

And since winter is right around the corner, there will also be more snowbirds there than most people care to think about.

I laughed out loud at that.

I do suppose "skinny old guy with a walker" can easily be shorted to "skinwalker".
