In the Aqueduct video casino deal, a role for Jay-Z

The parallels aren't direct, of course, but isn't it curious that entertainer and entrepreneur Jay-Z, a part-owner of the New Jersey Nets (whose prominence in news coverage far exceeds his tiny stake), is also reported (by the Post) to have a piece of the controversial Aqueduct Entertainment Group (AEG) deal for a video casino in Queens?

And isn't it curious that the Post, which has played up the role of consultant Darryl Greene (convicted of mail fraud) in the deal--now he's out--hasn't pointed out that Greene and Jay-Z are also part of the Atlantic Yards project?
