    Now, Charity, lets be fair, she has the right to sound stupid just like everybody else…
    Tina, there’s going to be crime in Springfield wether or not there is a casino, and lets be honest, if the city uses even a little of the taxes pulled in from a casino, they can put more security measures in place.
    Ps… “Tis better to close ones mouth and be thought a fool, then to open it, and remove all doubt.”
