State may be pulling the wool over our eyes

Monday’s mail brought a beautiful color brochure on how great new gambling casinos and our governor are going to help bring new revenue to our state over the next 20 years. A headline in Wednesday’s edition of The Union was about the dire state of finances here in good old California.

Are we having the wool pulled over our eyes? We all should disagree on the pact unless wording says we can ask for more any time the budget gets bad.
