Wayne Newton : Third Plastic Wonder of the World

Frankly, i'm not sure how to preface this op-ed piece from BusinessReport.com which, in theory at least, is about allowing a third riverboat casino to operate in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Enjoy.

Count me among those who have yet to hear a compelling argument against approving a third casino in Baton Rouge.

Believe me, I've tried to justify voting against [gaming company] Pinnacle's desire to build a casino and entertainment complex but I can't. My love of the free market won't allow it--not to mention a hunk, a hunk of burning desire to see a cosmetically held together Wayne Newton singing "Danke Schoen" in our growing metropolis.

Seriously, if Philadelphia, Mississippi, can land the third plastic wonder of the world [Phyllis Diller and Joan Rivers are one and two] why can't we?

Be careful what you wish for, it just might come true.
