I'm confused with what went on with slots yesterday. The Sun leads with the state Senate killing the attempts by some lawmakers to limit where slots may go (namely not in Prince George's Co., Timonium, or downtown Baltimore). The Post, however, leads with House members compromising on a bill that would keep slots out of P.G. Co. and Pimlico. In other words, the two bills making their way through the General Assembly barely resemble each other, and, I think, that means slots ain't going to get through the legislature this year. And they most certainly won't end up in P.G. Meanwhile, The Washington Times also led with the Senate's removal of certain sites from the list of potential slots sites. Its story also notes that the "deal-breakers" for Gov. Robert Ehrlich, slots' biggest proponent, are Timonium and Ocean Downs (near Ocean City). Oh, and here is the AP story, which leads with Senate President Mike Miller confident the legislature's gonna pass some sort of slots bill this year.

Like I said, it's confusing.
