I have two distinct lives. One in the trenches of low-budget film and television, the other in professional gambling. Because of the feast-or-famine nature of show business I need a reliable income... gambling. So here you will read about both worlds. Enjoy!

Circa's not checking ID, because "they are an over 21 property."

Like Richard pointed out, they ID elderly people who are obviously over 21. And they don't just look at IDs, they scan them into a computer. Who knows what they then do with customers' personal information?

It feels like another small step in the ever increasing corporate/government tracking of the population.
