Editor's note 10/6/16

As you’ll read in Patrick Yeagle’s cover story this week, Springfield is the capital of video gambling in Illinois. It has the most establishments offering video gambling – 176 – of any city, and the most terminals – 576. In the four years that video gambling has been legal, Springfield gamblers have lost $80 million to the machines. From all that, the city has received $4 million from the state over the four years in video gambling taxes. Aren’t we proud of ourselves? –Fletcher Farrar, editor and publisher
