As all Bostonians know, East Boston is one of the most geographically isolated areas of the city. And when it comes to gambling, it’s apparently not part of the city at all.

That’s the only plausible explanation I can come up with for Mayor Thomas M. Menino’s strange insistence that only East Boston and Revere vote on any proposal to put a casino at the site of Suffolk Downs racetrack, a notion the mayor holds dear.
