It just so happens that I share my birthday with the notorious World War I double agent Mata Hari. Hopefully I will come to a better end than she did. I’ve been enmeshed in a huge project for CDC Gaming Reports that’s kept my hands full lately. Also, today is my birthday, so I’m taking it slightly easy. Tomorrow will bring dispatches from Atlantic City and Massachusetts, as well as a ranking of the best movies set in casinos. See you then.
