I didn't know that running a narcotics ring out of the shed in your backyard qualified you for a 401K, Spoon. Oh wait...I'm sorry...I have you confused with Rendell. I'll never do that again.
Kind of funny that this came up. I was driving home from work last night and I was listening to Tim Benz discussing the arena issues. One caller had an interesting point (especially in light of this lady's comments) and that was this:
It's ironic is it that some people - say this guy from Duquesne - express their concerns over the IoC casino being so close to Duquesne Univ. because it would tempt students to spend too much time gambling.
This, however, is the same individual who has an interest in Station Square, which for a long time housed Chauncey's. And think back to the reason why Chauncey's was shut down (it was basically a front for a rather large drug ring).
From what Benz said, Chauncey's is just the tip of the iceberg. Apparently, there's a lot more to that story than most people realize, and it'll take some time to come out. But he said there were some other restaurants and stores in the area and some other well-known people involved, and people might be awfully surprised to see some of the names that come out in this.
I'll take it for what it's worth, but I found it somewhat interesting.
