Excellent letter in the Feb. 12 paper on the Northern Lights Express Train to Duluth. The writer was questioning why the “express” train was being diverted to the Hinckley Casino. Great question. Maybe some of our local Democrats could tell us how much campaign money they get from the tribes? Maybe the tribes could open their books and show where they donate their money? (not going to happen).
Bottom line, somebody is getting paid to send the train to the casino. It’s time to stop this money train before we spend tens of millions or more on a train that will lose money every year. If you want to go to Duluth, take a bus or drive yourself. The rest of the taxpayers should not have to subsidize your trip.
