US Gaming Versus Populism:

There was a WSJ article this today detailing increasing federal scrutiny of MGM's CityCenter construction site in Las Vegas. There should be. Six workers have died since commencement of the project in 2006.

The article is actually fairly balanced but wait until the rest of the Main Street media gets a hold of this one. Greedy corporation risking workers' lives to collect a $100 million bonus from a Middle Eastern Sovereign Fund (Dubai World) to finish construction on time.

I'll be waiting to pick up my NY Times one morning to see the headline:

"MGM, Oil Money, and The Value of Union Lives"
