Thanks, Gandler, for your reply.

About 6 months after I posted the above visit of 911 sites, another terrorist had bombed Manhattan and Seaside Park. You, I & many spectators could get killed if he bombed the AC Boardwalk during The Atlantic City Triathlon. Why did the bomber skip AC and choose to bomb Seaside Park instead? I don't know for sure. Perhaps he didn't want to hurt his fellow Muslims who have made a living thru "push carts/rolling chairs"" along the AC Boardwalk. Or perhaps he didn't like all those new cameras installed recently along the Boardwalk. Can you guys figure out why?

Here is a good write up on the bombings:

Its sad.

And, I honestly have no idea what would go through his mind as to why one city over the other.

That is an interesting theory, but I would guess, it is more likely he simply thought AC would not be busy enough to be worth attacking (which unfortunately is often a correct assumption). ISIS does not seem to have any moral issues with killing Muslims (Muslims are their main victims), so I doubt it would be a major factor.

I have actually been out of AC (down in GA for work) for a few months so I know nothing about the cameras. But, that may be another factor.

Today and tomorrow Atlantic City hosts the annual Marathon. There will be 3,000 runners and at least 10,000 spectators on AC Boardwalk.


The Almighty helps those who help themselves. So let's do our part seriously first (i.e., keeping an eye out for pressure cooker hidden in a large backpack), and then let's pray for safety of runners, their families, & the AC guys. Amen.
I'm OK with Corps which pick and choose clienteles. Both insurance companies and casinos have the right to pick and choose customers. They may keep profitable ones and kicked out the rest. But, I'm not OK with a casino supervisor who says counting cards... is like stealing food from a buffet (a foodlifting offense), or video-taping a movie in a cinema (a piracy offense).

To keep you guys on your toes, I'm going to quiz you guys with 4 true or false questions:

1) A guy removes Donald Trump's name with a sledgehammer and a pickaxe from Taj Casino.
2) A guy removes Donald Trump's name with a sledgehammer and a pickaxe from Trump Plaza Casino.
3) A guy removes Donald Trump's name with a sledgehammer and a pickaxe from Trump Marina Casino.
4) A guy removes Donald Trump's name with a sledgehammer and a pickaxe from the Walk of Fame star on Hollywood Blvd.

The answer:

Thanks for the link to the story.

We need another "Bob Nersesian" in AC to fight for APs' perfect right to gamble. Currently AC casinos have circumvented the ruling of Uston vs Resorts. The ruling sez AC casinos can't ban APs, but AC casinos indirectly ban APs by eviction orders with phony accusations.

Here is a real example. An AC casino bans an AP. AP mails the casino a certified letter which cites the ruling. The casino answers & sez: "We are in compliance with the ruling. You're evicted NOT for ********* [aka APing], but for ******* [phony accusation]." I kid you guys not.

AC is dead. There are no ones there for the casino to ban.

No APs for casinos to ban? Hmmm... The fact speaks louder than speculation.

Every AP-catcher is still employed in the AC casinos (i.e., Catcher "R" in Borg, "N" in Bally's, "J" in GN, "B" in Trop, etc...); therefore, there are still APs for the catchers to do a job on. Otherwise, why do AC casinos waste money on catchers' salaries?

Hey guys, I wish that AC casino welcomes APs the way it welcomes the above sexy slot skilled player.

The DGE recently posted the AC Casinos' winnings for Oct.

http://www.nj.gov/oag/ge/docs/Financials/PressRel2016/October2016.pdf

Borg is still the leader of the pack. It won $64,170,709 from gamblers. Resorts replaced Taj in the ranking list. It came in last. It only won $14,295,876 from gamblers.

Which casino will be likely the next one close down? Without Taj (closed on 10/10), Resorts got much less foot traffic (as reported by its dealers). Its winnings in Oct dropped from 14,819,898 to 14,295,876... a $500,000 drop!
