Let’s compare the prospect of Weaver’s Cove LNG vs. Casino Gambling in SouthCoast Massachusetts. I’m not a huge fan of building more casinos, but this seems like a good time to have a bit of fun with this issue, since Chris Gabrieli is suggesting a casino to help fill the Massachusetts state coffers.
LNG Tanks on the Taunton River
Southcoast residents gamble with their disposable income.
Hess gambles with the lives of SouthCoast residents, considering them disposable.
The casino always puts the odds against you, but citizens still can win sometimes, or at least have fun playing.
SouthCoast residents can’t win, because they seemingly have no say. The odds of surviving an LNG explosion are even slimmer than winning on double-zero in Roulette.
A riverboat casino could maximize the underused waterfront on the Taunton River.
LNG tankers could maximize the traffic when they close the bridges going over the river.
If SouthCoast residents make a killing at the casino, they’d really have a blast.
The blast of an LNG tanker could kill residents a mile away from the river.
