51/365: Death Of A Casino

Death Of A Casino 1

There have been a few posts here and on St. Louis Daily Photo about the demise of the casino on The Admiral, once the grand excursion boat of the Mississippi. I happened to drive by the entrance along the river yesterday. It looks sadder and sadder, with only the ghosts of the lettering left. Frequent readers know what I think about casinos, though: social disasters, grifters, predators upon the desperate. I'm not sorry to see at least one of them leave. To paraphrase what John Cleese said in Monty Python And The Holy Grail, they should go away or I shall taunt them a second time.
