The new Resorts World casino—as operated by robots in compliance with New York State law, after a very long ordeal to bring more gambling revenue to Aqueduct—had its grand opening this afternoon. Look who it brought in: Democratic assemblyman David Weprin is testing his hand at the games of fortune!
- As they say in Vegas: This town wasn’t built on winners.
- Hitting the jackpot: Wouldn’t be the first time he made history in Queens.
- At least he’s only gambling with his money.
- Many insiders are seeing his loss as yet another referendum by machines against those pulling on them.
And so on.
