I could understand playing to his base, but this is not the first time that he had released statements like this that were pretty... that were sent out late at night, and draw some connotations from that if you will, under some stressful things from the casino issue that was being debated here. He can have a bit of a hair trigger, he can become influenced by all the things that a late night would engender. I think probably alcohol probably played a part of it, just to come out with it. It's just suppositional on my part, but he's sent out messages like this before, to Plain Dealer people on the casino issue, that were over the top.Livingston is just saying what every reporter who deals with Dan Gilbert already knows.
