Flamenco Dancing

Never mind.

Apparently, Spectrum Gaming Group, the consulting firm that our current one-term Governor hired earilier this year to conduct an in-depth financial analysis of his proposed three-casino plan has defaulted on their second deadline to produce said report.

(Incidently, in addition to conducting economic and feasibility studies, Spectrum also wins the trifecta of non-impartiality by providing services for casino operators and developers, Indian nations, and suppliers to the gaming industry.)

They probably even have a portrait of Clyde Barrows hanging in the conference room.

But according to Kofi Jones, spokeswoman for the Governor's Office of Casinos and Misinformation, the generous extension of Spectrum's orginial deadline was “to ensure that their analysis addresses comprehensively every question raised by legislators during the March casino hearing,"

Or... maybe they just couldn't find any good answers.


Jane Curtin: Weekend Update recognizes its obligation to present responsible opposing viewpoints to our editorials. Here to reply to a recent editorial, is Emily Litella.

Emily Litella: What's all this I keep hearing about bringing Flamenco Dancing to Massachusetts? Why, that's the best idea I've heard in quite some time. Can you imagine? All those clicking heels and fancy dresses. It's about time we brought back dancing to the Bay State. Can't you just imagine them on the beaches, or at Tanglewood...

Jane Curtin: Emily....

Emily Litella: Twisting and turning around like whirling dirvishes...

Jane Curtin: Emily...

Emily Litella: ...Why, we could make Charo's birthday a state holiday...

Jane Curtin: Emily...

Emily Litella: ...And people would come from miles and miles around just to watch and particpate in our Flamenco Dancing contests. I can't believe that anybody would want to stop Flamenco Dancing from coming to Massachusetts!

Jane Curtin: Emily!

Emily Litella: Yes?

Jane Curtin: It's not Flameco Dancing. It's Casino Gambling. The Governor wants to bring Casino Gambling to Massachusetts.

Emily Litella: Oh. Never mind.
