Did you catch that article on bringing gambling to the Island? It's a good one. It actually covers both sides of the issue. It's informative. It really makes you think. It produces a quality outlook on what gambling could or couldn't do to our Island. It is very well written.
It is, however. Written by a non-Islander. A non-local. Not a BOI. Or an IBC. It almost angers me to say it. It's written by a Houstonian!!
That's right. Perhaps the best, most well thought piece written about gambling moving into our Island is written by an outsider. This saddens me. But at the same time, I'm glad it was written. And I have extreme admiration that the author chose to include advocates for both sides of the controversy. This is more than any other local periodical (I won't name names - *COUGH* GDN!!!) has chosen to do.
Now it's shameless plug time. The article also includes mention of Islander By Choice along with a brief interview in order to get some of our thoughts and insight to the matter. Again, major props to the author for seeking out young, middle-class Islanders who care about what's going on, what's changing, and what's important on Galveston Island.
So check out the article for yourselves. See the link below. And share with us and the group. What are your thoughts? How does it make you feel?
