Letter of the Day: Destination: RP

  • Greg Sarris is chairman of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, which plans to build a casino near Rohnert Park. (CRISTA JEREMIASON / The Press Democrat)

EDITOR: Thank you for the fine, interesting and enlightening article on Greg Sarris (“The enigmatic leader behind RP casino,” Sunday). To paraphrase Gertrude Stein, Sarris is finally putting the “ ‘there' there in Rohnert Park.” The casino promises to be not only an economic boost for the city but also a pleasant experience for

visitors to and residents of the area.

Those who consider gambling to be immoral (“Morality of casinos,” Letters, Sunday) may want to ponder if it's any different from betting on (investing in) the stock market. There were many losers in the Great Recession and the Great Depression.

Kudos to Sarris, and best wishes for continuing success in seeing the Rohnert Park casino project completed.
