Columnist thinks an expansion on non-Indian gaming in Florida is inevitable:
Get ready for more gambling.

The latest news out of Tallahassee has legislators preparing to unveil plans next week to bring big new casinos to Florida.

And while there are still details to work out and political posturing to perform, you can bet your bottom dollar: The casinos will come.

I'm not sure whether the deal will be reached next week or next year. But it will be reached.

Why? Because there's simply too much money involved for it to fail.

Money for the state. (We're talking billions in revenues.)

And money for the politicians who crave it for their campaigns. (With checks as big as $500,000 each.)
