People in Massachusetts, what do you think about the proposed Casino in Middleboro?
This weekend is supposed to be a huge debate at the High School in Middleboro over a proposed casino. What is your opinion having one in Massachusetts, or in Middleboro for that matter? I live extreamly close to where it would be built.

I'm absolutely thrilled by the idea. I adore Mohegan Sun, and would LOVE to see MA benefit from the some of the $$$ it brings in. I'd also love to drive less than an hour and a half each way... More

I like the idea. More money for Mass. Why should Conn. make money that should go to us. It might help our taxes stabilize.

I think it would be great! I'm sure this is because I don't live close enough that the traffic would greatly effect me, or get the negative side effects. . . But, it would cause a boost in the economy here, and I think it would be fun to boot!

Truthfully I'm worried. It's all fine and good for people who love to gamble and don't live or work within an earshot. But unfortunately, I do work there. I think the traffic logistics will be nightmarish and that's what I fear the most.
