Calling our Bluff

(Pubic Information Unlimited)

Legislators in West Virginia are considering a proposal to add table games to the gambling barns of our southern neighbor. This proposal is directly in response to the legalization of slots gaming in the Keystone state. "We can't let the Mountaineers snatch the rug out from under us. We have to raise the stakes," offered Governor Ed "Big Tony" Rendell, "Not only will we add table games, but we're gonna call their "buff" and add table dances too." Insiders say proposals to fully legalize prostitution are also starting to float around the capital in anticipation of further escalation.

"Hey, you're either with the incredible economic opportunities afforded by gambling, or you're against it!," noted the region's former top development official, Ron "Big Rascal" Bryant.
