    I wonder which sentence will be longer . . . his or Michael Vick’s?

    ya know, at least I have to give him credit for ‘fessin’ up…unlike the Hagues, Vicks, and Craigs that have been in the news lately. Now he has to face the music…maybe they can shorten his prison sentence if he goes to rehab :D

    Let’s not be naive. People don’t usually plead guilty because they had a sudden attack of conscience – its usually that the evidence against them is very solid and/or they are looking for a lighter sentence

    Or, if you’re an Idaho senator pleading guilty you’re just looking to avoid the press that comes with cruising the men’s rooms for sex…

    I think he was just signaling the guy in the next stall that he needed some toilet paper…. yeah, right ;-)

    The real investigation should be on how Greg Nickels got the casino job for his son in the first place. There is no way that a guy in his early twenties would be hired to be a pit boss in a casino without some serious political pull, it is a position with far too much responsibility. Nickels is knee deep in the self-serving political culture he has institutionalized in this city since he became mayor, this is just one more example. I hope that an investigative reporter makes this a little project, there is fire where there is smoke.

    Hey Vio,

    Check out the recent copy of Seattle Weekly with a cover story about the sordid affair. Sounds like being a pit boss at this little casino was not a big deal (pun intended). But maybe I’m a little naive.

    What I know about casinos could fit in a thimble with space left for my pinky finger.

Sorry, comment time is over.
