    Turdo wants a private licker or no deal.
    Costa wants no vgts so all bets are off.
    The godfather wants expanded casino gambling in airports, churches and post offices or else.
    The Gov wants to tax the gassers or find a better way.
    Nobody wants to toll I-80 and make the out of staters pay.
    So….let’s just do a bond issue for 2.5 billion and make Uncle Charley happy.
    La familia is gonna have a good Christmas. Five fishies for all of us! Yay!
