Adrienne Raphel writes about why Atlantic City casinos have lost much of their pull: http://nyr.kr/1aO5jsp
“Since 2006, Atlantic City casino revenue has fallen by more than forty-one per cent, from more than five billion dollars to three billion last year. With gambling legalized in the surrounding states, Atlantic City casinos have lost much of their pull: Why travel an hour and a half if you can lose money in your own backyard?”

I’m going to go out on a limb and say people don’t want to go there because it’s awful and depressing and they don’t give you enough free drinks when you gamble. I went once and have never been back.
Ha, apparently that was my thousandth Tumblr post. How appropriate.
So how does that work, exactly? Did they just trap all the innocent Gallifreyans in like, a time bubble with the crazyass Time Lords who want to blow up the universe? Cough cough Rassilon, cough cough? And now the 11th Doctor’s going to have to go kill them AGAIN? Since that’s basically where the 10th Doctor is going from there and what’s making him regenerate?
Ugh. I was optimistic, but bleh. Just bleh. The Doctor destroying his own people is the major thing that made the show so emotionally powerful. Now it’s just boring.
