Let's Talk: Riverfront casinos

Cincinnati Mayor Charlie Luken said Tuesday that the city deserves a piece of the casino action that now goes downriver to Indiana's gambling boats.

He called on Ohio Gov. Bob Taft and the General Assembly to put an amendment to the state constitution on the ballot that would allow Ohio's big cities to decide if they wanted casino gambling. Luken said it only makes economic sense to keep the revenue from Ohio gamblers in Ohio, rather than letting it go to Indiana, or perhaps someday, Kentucky.
