Yesterday, voters in Linn County (where Cedar Rapids is) approved building a casino in their county.
I thought it was interesting to see so much support for the casino, around town and also among Cedar Rapids natives at the law school. About 10 years ago, when I was growing up in Hood River, Oregon, there was a proposal to build a casino nearby. And there I saw a lot more opposition for the casino than support, and not just among my fellow "goody two-shoes" Mormons. I think I saw one "Yes Casino" bumper sticker the whole campaign. I don't know if it's a difference between Oregon and Iowa, or a difference between 2002 and 2013, or what it is.
Anyway, here's my cartoon:
I also did a cartoon for the possibility that the casino didn't pass:
I also drew a cartoon yesterday for Hugo Chavez's death. I didn't get it done in time for today's paper, plus they had this casino cartoon already. So maybe it will be in tomorrow's paper.
