WHDH reports Wynn officials are considering ditching that name from the Everett casino they're building because of all the publicity about what a horrible person Wynn was.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
Most of us could care less.
the phrase is "could not care less"
if you could care less, that means that you have a level of caring that is not at rock bottom, and therefore you do care at least a little bit.
How about I don't care at all what they name it. I do care about it opening ASAP so I can check it out and have fun spending!!!
I mean, not much less, but still, I know I haven't yet hit the floor of caring, thus putting me at a level where I could not less.
that I could.
that I don't care about what a bunch of stupid broads said! I really don't!!
or rather, that you couldn't care less.
But don't mind me. In my hometown, when they mean "So do I", they say "So don't I."
I first heard that formulation on the lips of a woman about whom I could not care more, so I am prejudiced, but I always heard it as having an implied sarcastic counterfactual sense, as in “oh yeah, as if I could care less”. But maybe that was just the way she said it.
Popular expression with the beat generation. I’ve had guys swear up and down that’s the way they said it. Dripping with sarcasm.
if I'm remembering correctly, who advanced this view of the "sarcastic" nature of the expression. I can believe it as a possibility, if expressed/heard orally with the right intonation, but it seems pretty dubious as either a general matter or in written form.
OTOH, switching to a descriptivist rather than a prescriptivist viewpoint, if the expression is commonly used that way, and is understood to mean what the user intends, then it's OK, logic be damned.
that they can afford to spend their time and their constituent's TAX money debating the vital matter of telling a corporation what name they're allowed to put on their building.
Not exactly government at their finest here.
You have no idea.
They really want this casino to succeed - it isn't just a cash cow, but a herd of cash cows.
It is very much worth getting involved with - they are really looking out for taxpayers here because having this many jobs and this much taxable property value on a former waste dump means less taxes for the people who live there.
Still a pointless exercise.
They think another name would net them more cash.
Now if you excuse me I need to use my NYNEX phone to call Boston Edison.
They could just add two letters "ER" and have a marketing bonanza:
the WynnER Casino...imply as advertising sometimes does that you would not lose money if you gamble there ?
Do you get the WynnER WynnER chicken dinner if you visit or hit the slots?
( no title wordplay on "lose / Wynn"? )
"The Weinstein Company is going to change its name. Wynn will do the same. Their product is still one of the best in a sea of horrible experiences."
(Adam, is there a means of embedding a tweet in a comment like there is in the stories/posts?)
I don't care about the name. What I would like to know is will there be a refund from the law firm (from Rhode Island, I think) hired to do the background check into Mr. Wynn's character?
Can someone explain to me how they missed the payoffs to victims of his attacks?
Inexcusable. It just shows me that this state can't do anything correctly the first time.
Let's wait and see what the retail marijuana law will be like.
totally based on conjecture without a shred of supporting evidence is that the Gaming Commission did not want to award the casino to Suffolk, as they felt that land could be put to better use, awarded the casino to Wynn and were probably aware that some baggage was attached, set the ball rolling, then "look what we found." The casino is well on its way to being built. As opposed to having to defend the decision to award it to Wynn with his bad reputation already disclosed.
Oh my dears. The problem is not the name. The problem is that you are all bad people.
The Everett Casino
We're talking the community where the superintendent funnelled off money from special ed to throw homecoming parties and install central air in his house using school department labor.
The very city name conjures up recent corruption.
And you won't wonder where your money went.
Good! Change it. The Wynn name is now associated with a dirty old perv.
A MassDOT variable message sign on Route 16 in Medford, on the way to Wegmans, has "WynnForAll.com" as part of its message. That seems massively inappropriate.
Afer all, the state is a direct competitor, running the biggest casino in town, AKA the Lottery.
MYSTIC RIVER CASINO
Will be the new name
Since it is on the mystic river.
