Wouldn't it be something if the Mississippi Gaming Commission, meeting today, approves an application for the Lane Co. to place a casino in Natchez. That could very well mean that the new h(m)otel on Canal Street could have been built without $2,000,000 (that's MILLION) of our money going out of the window.
The final approval for the new h(m)otel came after the negotiations for the new casino had begun and the City could have insisted that the casino developers include a Canal St. Hotel in their plans. RIGHT? Then we'd all be $2,000,000 (that's MILLION) better off.
But NO. They just had to do it their way.
