BOSTON, Dec 5 (Reuters) – The chief executive of MGM Resorts
International expressed confidence on Thursday that his plan to
develop a gambling casino in western Massachusetts would win
regulatory approval despite opposition by activists who oppose
casinos in the state.
Massachusetts has yet to approve a casino proposal, more
than two years since Governor Deval Patrick signed a law
allowing for three to be built in the state. Voters in several
cities and towns have rejected proposed developments.

BOSTON, Dec 4 (Reuters) – Actor Will Ferrell, in character
as bumbling fictional television news anchorman Ron Burgundy,
advised viewers to believe 71 percent of what they see on news
programs and complained that too few journalists have facial
hair in a Wednesday appearance at a Boston college.
Ferrell’s mustachioed, burgundy-suited character also
misidentified one of the deans of Emerson College as former
astronaut John Glenn, the first American to orbit the earth.
