Random News – Paul and Donald on the Road

Trump gets green light to build “world’s greatest course”  Donald Trump holds a golf club during a media event on the sand dunes of the Menie estate, the site for Trump’s proposed golf resort, near Aberdeen, Scotland

Not really a slow news day, but nothing spectacular happened either. The next three casinos in Pennsylvania to offer table games started dealing cards today, the last of the three casinos in Delaware to open table games will start tomorrow.  Iowa reported the first year of declining gaming revenues since 1993, Illinois reported an increase in lottery revenues, the UK lottery Camelot sold to a Canadian provincial teacher’s retirement fund.

The World Cup is over, but Paul is in the news everywhere, at an expo in Russia a Chinese pavilion is stamping visitors with a stamp that resembles Paul, it is said to bring luck.  People, businesses and sport leagues in several countries are trying to buy Paul, but the aquarium where he lives says he has retired and will not be traveling anywhere. They have however increased the security, Dutch fans have threatened to kill him, some German fans are demanding he be publicly roasted and in Argentina a TV hosted cut up and blended an octopus as revenge against Paul; and if you want more Paul there is a song on youtube about him.

Meanwhile, the Donald has sent a representative to Georgia to explore business opportunities for the Trump brand in the former Russian state; wasn’t Stalin born in Georgia? What a great match – Trump and Stalin; imagine a Trump Tower, a Trump Casino and a Trump shopping center on the Black Sea with a statue of Stalin standing in the doorway to greet visitors. Seems Ivanka was there a couple of months ago, but the Trump spokesman says there is no relationship between the two visits.  Speaking of The Donald, I wonder if he will join in the bidding for Playboy, old Hugh and his rivals at Penthouse are seeking to gain control of the bunny empire.  It could work for Trump and might make it easier for him to find his next wife – Mr. Hefner has certainly found the empire to be a fertile ground for an old man to find young women. But today Trump is too busy to think about it, construction started on his golf course in Scotland.  As busy as Trump is, maybe he doesn’t have time for Playboy and its bunnies.
