Gambling companies burying Harrisburg in paper

There are currently five companies vying to bring gambling to the 16 acre plot of land in South Philly, between Reed and Tasker. They all see gold in that formerly industrial tract of land, and are filing thousands of pounds of paper in Harrisburg to convince the lawmakers why each one of them would make the best organization to bring gambling to the City of Brotherly Love.

I’m really not thrilled about the idea of gambling in our city, but being that I find losing five dollars in a slot machine to be a painful experience, I’m probably not the best person to comment.

What do you all out there think about South Philly gambling? Is there a company you’d prefer seeing down there?
