Who uses it: Advocates of legalized gambling
What it means: A race track that also offers casino games (usually slot machines).
How you can use it: When talking to Steve Lechner.

My friend Steve represents a group of Native American tribes that are trying to open a racino Down East -- you can read all about it here. I enjoy a day at the track, though I've never been to the harness races. Casinos aren't my idea of a good time, but I'll defend the tribes' right to make money in any way they see fit.

The Bragdons and I had dinner at the Lechners' last night, a fine time brought to us in part by the bounty of Trader Joe's. Ever since Jen discovered the glory of Trader Joe's, she's been determined that Maine should have one. She is circulating an online petition that I drafted, in an effort to convince TJ's management that we need a store here; if you are a resident of Maine, please join us in this effort by clicking here. Thanks for your support.

Thanks for your support! It's somewhat ironic that Steve doesn't like gambling at all and can't stand slot machines. It's not a moral stand, he just doesn't think it's fun.
