Is there a place for casino gambling in the Pioneer Valley, and if so, where?

If there is a place for casino gambling in the "Happy" Pioneer Valley, we think we've fund the best location. Not Springfield, not Westside, not Palmer, not even Holyoke or Chicopee. The perfect location is the four contiguous small communities of Dana, Enfield, Greenwich and Prescott. Oops! They're at the bottom of the Quabbin. Oh, well! Think about how fabulous the reservoir would look with a neon glow emenating from it's waters every night And if Lake Trout are silly enough to swallow shiners on our "Eagle Claw" hooks, they must be gullible enough to swim up to "poker machines" and drop a few quarters.
Mt Tom and the former site of Mountain Park. River views are possible, and think about a restaurant on the top of the mountain!
Not only should we have long ago eliminated all these ridiculous blue laws that impose their artifical religious morality on us all, but it's time to truly embrace what the words freedom mean.
As for physical location, Springfield truly seems the best bet. Not only is it suffering still from the tornado, but when was the last time we had a chance at attracting any employer of this magnitude?
As a worker in an office tower downtown, I greatly look forwad to the return of commerce, safety, and fun entertainment to the once great metropolis.
