WILSON, OK--A suspicious device forced the evacuation of a Texoma casino today.

Around 11 a.m. an employee of the black gold casino in Wilson claimed to have found a suspicious device in the men's restroom.

The device was described as a pipe wrapped in black tape without wires. The light horse police said they evacuated the casino and the store next door.

Several agencies including the Wilson Police, the FBI, and the Oklahoma bomb squad management were all called to the scene. The device was safely destroyed by authorities and the casino and store have reopened.

    Suspicious devices are what makes the casinos go! They are the crack houses of electronic stimulation in a nation of electronic crack fiends. Do you know why over half of all new hires in today's workforce are over 50? Because it's becoming more difficult to find anyone under 30 that can go without a Facebook hit or tweet for more than 10 minutes without going through withdrawals. Where will it take us? I don't know, but at least I'll be watching while most of you are oblivious to anything beyond those 3.5 inch screens in the palms of your hands.

    Oh. I thought the suspicious device was going to be a slot machine that actually paid off. I would be very suspicious if I ever saw one of those in an Indian casino.
