Tonight at 9:30 PM EDT: HuffPost Live on casinos as an unsound urban revitalization strategy
Because of the piece I wrote recently, "What to make of casinos as an "urban revitalization" method and detroyer?," I've been asked to appear on a HuffPost Live segment on casinos and urban revitalization
Richard Florida wasn't on, but the segment was inspired by a piece he wrote on HuffingtonPost with regard to casino proposals for Toronto, "Casinos ruin cities."
-- proposal for casinos in Chicago, "Chicago's proposed casino: Tourist gem or drain on locals," Chicago Sun-Times and "Chicago casino bill would give city unprecedented control," Chicago Tribune
-- proposal for casinos in Toronto, "Meeting back on: councillors to vote on downtown casino," CTV News and "Ford vows to take casino debate to the polls if proposal voted down," Toronto Globe & Mail
