The Lemonade Stand
One must give the Bethlehem boy mayors, both former and current, some credit for the lemonade stand called the Sands Casino. I don't mean they had anything to do with it, but easy smiles and short memories, careers do make. Decades ago, a counter-culture writer said he was down so long, it seemed like up to him. We are ecstatic about a business that will hire 2,500 people to milk our disposal income during the worst recession in 80 years. It was built on a former foundation of America which employed 25,000 people, and provided the steel to build the architectural icons of our country.
The photo to the right shows the new casino lobby with red tubes symbolizing the gun barrel shop, ready to rob you. The top photo shows the actual shop which produced the 16 inch battleship guns which helped save the world. Drink up and have fun.
