Dan Mihalopoulos breaks the news that Richard Mell and George Cardenas want one to take the place of the Olympic Village (I don’t hold out any hope that developers would consider the Gropiusness of the site a draw for gambling architecture buffs).

This will of course raise questions of the sort inspired by the video poker ban, which I can never quite understand given that you can play a giant slot machine at practically any convenience store in Chicago. At least card games are fun. Tsk, etc.
