A friend sent this link today from the Daily Herald and asks the question: "CSU gets 2% of the take at this casino. What is being done with that revenue?"
I guess this is an argument for keeping CSU at the status of an Illinois patronage pit (assuming we don't aspire to much more than that). This deal was cut some time ago, I believe. Without political connections we'd never have gotten this benefit. I wonder though, was it--is it-- worth it?
