Have they lost their absolute minds?Â A casino at The Boulevard, which is within walking distance of a metro stop that the County was hoping to develop into something decent.Â It’s a SUPER bad idea.
From the Washington Post:
“Charles Hopkins, a Prince Georgeâ€™s native and principal of RMD Holdings, has pitched a plan to Maryland lawmakers to put Casino Largo at the shopping center. As envisioned, the venue would have 4,750 slot machines, 117 table games and a host of other amenities, including a night club, spa and small sports arena.”
Hopkins goes on to say that he really just doesn’t see why this couldn’t happen.Â Mr. Hopkins is on some mind altering drug if he thinks that area wouldn’t swiftly be further reduced with the addition of a casino.Â Â The Boulevard isÂ already a bit rough; certainly not upscale, not that it has to be.Â But to bring in a casino wouldÂ be the equivalent of fundingÂ and building a well-lit ghettoÂ where people can come and be legally robbed.
