Wow! What a lovely “site”! Rush Street Gaming plans to build a Walmart-like …

Photo: Our first chance to see their "vision."  A sea of asphalt parking lots filling Kelley Square with a small jumble of three buildings in the center.

… building in the Canal District (on the Wyman Gordon site)! Look at their slots parlor site plan! Look at that ugly BIG BOX!

These billionaires aren’t dopes: they have hired the priciest, most-connected lawyers in the city to do their bidding. Lawyers with old Worcester money, blue blood roots and a ton of clout: Fletcher (Allen Fletcher’s older, more sedate brother), Tilton and Whipple.
