Contrast

An interesting pair of articles in the main section of the Buffalo News this morning:

The first, Falls is victim in casino funds standoff, describes how a poor city dependent on paybacks from the Indian casino is being strangled when the Senecas refuse to pay their agreed percentage back to the state. A little less than $20 million per year is at stake.

The second, NYC’s St. Pat’s cathedral to get $177M restoration, describes the extensive renovation of a single church in New York City.

Ah, well, the big man said the poor will always be with us, right?

    It seems like Karmic justice that the Indians (Tee Pees, not call centers) are getting one over on the white man, finally.

    Saint Patrick’s is a breathtaking monument to what religion can inspire Man to create. I’m sure the renovation will be worth every penny.

    These casino owners come, but they do not respect the land. They hunt the elusive Niagara Falls money, but that prey cannot last. Soon the Niagara Falls money will be gone, like Father Eagle, and these casino owners will turn to themselves and hunt each other.

    Is that like “Most Dangerous Game”?
