I'm swayed into voting mostly insignificant for now based on weather and lack of action to be competitive by giving the people what they want-better gaming.

How very true IMHO. One month is far to short a period to judge if ac's fortunes have stabilized.

Also there was 5 Fridays and Saturdays in January, which increases the numbers. These are the only 2 days AC is busy in the winter.

That and the fact that it wasn't stupidly cold this year, I mean, it was, but not, "Icicles are forming on the tip of my nose and I haven't even opened the screen door yet," cold.

Keep in mind that last year was so cold, that in a different market, Horseshoe Casino Cleveland and Hollywood Toledo both closed briefly:

They might be comparing January to January, but they're still comparing apples to oranges.

Although, I do think it is a wise decision to make some hype about the improved numbers, generate some confidence and a positive vibe...both good things.
