Tunica’s casinos are planning to shut down this weekend because of flooding concerns along the Mississippi River.When Mississippi passed the law allowing gambling it was for 'riverboat gambling'. Riverboats float. So why the big concern about a rising river down there? Yeah, I know.
Meanwhile, up here, and elsewhere along the river, it's a grim, slow moving disaster in the waiting. We're not sure what will result here if the Bird's Point levee is blown, but then again this is uncharted territory. And if that's not enough, we got a call from somebody today that sounded a lot like an automatic voice telling us to brace ourselves because a test earthquake was occurring. It was a good reminder, but geez, we're all kind of shaky down here right now.
