At 5:35 this morning all of a sudden I realize what I'm seeing on Fox 2 News. Reporter Kim Hudson is standing outside Collinsville City Hall doing a report on something that came up at last night's council meeting. This is too funny. I mean, really, city hall is locked up and dark-no one is there. Don't they think we'd understand the story even if they told it back in the studio?
The story is about a city council discussion on the result of a ballot question on video gambling during the November 6 election. The voting public voted that they felt it was ok to allow bars and restaurants and veteran's halls to have a bingo or poker video game on the premises. To that approval the council approved it last night 3-1. The issue which brought Fox 2 out to an empty city wall was the question raised over whether the voters understood 'Prohibit' or 'Approve' when they went into vote.
