We told you when the legislation was pending. We told you when it was approved. We told you when it went before voters in Hot Springs and West Memphis. We tell you again. Southland and Oaklawn plan to turn their tracks into video poker parlors the minute the rule-making is complete for expansion of machine gambling at the race tracks. The track operators are still being coy, despite more evidence that the poker slots are coming. What do you bet the machines are already in production and the wiring to accommodate them on the drawing board, if not being wired as we speak.

Pictionary? Games of skill? Riiiiiiiight. The machines will be set to pay off at a predetermined rate. Somebody's gonna win. The house.
