Hedge your bets

Missed this the other day.   I see no local mention that the Mayor was in Cleveland and had an unexpected message.  This headline was in the Plain Dealer: 

Hedge your bets on revenue from casino, Pittsburgh mayor advises Clevelanders

Uh...  I don't disagree at all... but...... has anyone looked at the 5 year plan for the city budget?  No reliance on sustained casino revenues there.   And then there is this little issue of table games saving everything else.  I think the city is slated to get what?   all of 1.0% in the form of a tax on table games.    Also some interesting comments with the Cleveland article. 

anyway.   weekly numbers up a bit, so people gamble over Thanksgiving... but clearly in a range.

Speaking of Cleveland...   the only international flight they have, which is just a summer only Continental flight to London, was cancelled today.  I wonder about the future of the Pittsburgh to Paris flight which I took again a couple weeks ago.  Less than half full.  Most folks were able to stretch out across 3 seats to sleep. Delta sent a bill to someone for the revenue shortfall.

There are no international flights from Cleveland to Canada?

You know, with sources for attribution, that Delta sent a bill? If so, the source should be given.
