A July 20 story in the Register
about controversial comments attributed to Foxwoods CEO Scott Butera by the Boston Globe incorrectly attributed a comment to Butera that should have been attributed to the writer of the Globe story
. According to the Globe story, Butera said Foxwoods can do without what the Globe termed those stereotypical busloads of senior citizens who show up with walkers and oxygen tanks.
“We’ve dropped a lot of that … not for humane reasons,” Butera was quoted as saying in the Globe story. The Globe’s reporter then wrote: It’s because those darn elders don’t gamble away enough of their money to help Foxwoods reach its goal, which at this point is basic survival.
The Globe did not attribute that statement to Butera.
