Catching Up, The Hard Way

I have yet to figure out how to create an index of blog pieces that you the reader could easily access. So it seems I am going to have to do it the hard way. IT is giving you access to earlier pieces by reprinting them. I want to that because there have been new followers of the blog and I want to give you background information and links to people who are a lot smarter than me on the subject. I might try making one long piece if that is possible or I will print multiple pieces. I apologize in advance for the inconvenience of receiving multiple notices.

If you decide that you received too much info I suggest you read one series that you can google yourself. ProPublica is one of the best, if not the best, investigative reporting sites on the web. ProPublica Illinois did a 4-part series on the state of gambling in IL that gives a broad view of the past, present and future state of gambling in IL.
