Voice of Steelers endorses Pens slots proposal

Myron Cope, the former voice of the Steelers, wrote a letter to the editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (again, how great would it be to have competing newspapers?)

Cope is a Pittsburgh icon and has made his feelings known on the slots parlor/arena deal.

You need to scroll half-way down on this link to see Cope's letter."

I still have no idea what will happen in Pittsburgh. On one hand I think public sentiment will sway the Governor and political leaders in Pittsburgh to "find a way" to get a new arena with slots revenues. On the other hand, I think Harrah's, with their massive financial and political influence, will win the slots parlor license and the Penguins will say bye-bye to the Iron City.
