Letter: Where are the elderly, where are the desperate?
The hypothetical people in Millennium Gaming’s rendition of a casino room are all young, slender and white. Some are in uniforms designating employees (middle-aged or people of color need not apply?). Where are the overweight, the elderly, the limbless, the shabby, the desperate? Not a wheelchair or a cane in sight! If Millennium thinks this will help the pro-forces make their case, I question its sense of New Hampshire.
Reps. John Cebrowski and David Bordenmake a case for increasing new money coming into our state via manufacturing jobs (“There is a better way than casino gambling,” Monitor Opinion page, May 18).
Isn’t that a better vision than the left hand paying less for groceries and other goods while the right hand pays more for gambling at a casino table? Same old money, just redirected!
