Niagara Gazette — "I don't wanna hear it. The way I see it, this city was really taken on that whole deal. Maybe now it's just payback time.
What in the world do you mean by that?
“Go figure. The Dutch took Manhattan island from the Indians for $24 and a few trinkets.The Senecas got your casino for a single dollar and, as part of that sweetheart contract, they're still sitting on about $60 million (the city's 6.25 percent of the state's share from the casino slot machine revenues.) Some compact!"
Okay, quit being such a downer, Louie. Can't we talk about some brighter days ahead?
"What, like that high-speed railroad that supposed to zip across the state. That could reach 110 miles-per-hour and if they don't build some kind of wall near the gorge, that thing could end in St. Catharines. Or even Hamilton before it stops. My guess is the Border Patrol will use that new train station as a holding center for illegals or Canadian shoppers trying to smuggle stuff back home."
I can see you haven't lost your reputation for being cynical. Let's be serious for a minute. You were always a staunch Bills' fan. Think Buffalo will win a Super Bowl some day?
"Not if they keep trading good players. And if they hire any more guys like 'Super Mario,' they'll have to file for Chapter 11. Look at that (Marshawn) Lynch and how well he's doing with them Seahawks."
I have to admit you're right about that, Louie. The Bills trade a guy and he often turns out a star with his new team. That Marshawn has been real hard to stop. With the Seahawks, he seems to run all over anyone who gets in his way.
