Author's Note: How Corporate Bankruptcy Works

Count me among the apparently small group of people who are sad to see the Trump Atlantic City properties go. The Trump Plaza closed its doors on the New Jersey boardwalk earlier this month and it appears that The Trump Taj Mahal is also on its way out as a result of similar financial difficulties. As a gambler, that means less of an opportunity to try to grab old man Trump's cash. The Donald hasn't been involved in those casinos for quite some time now, but his name and face are plastered all over the joints. Winning money at the blackjack table is always fun. Winning money "from" Donald Trump is extra special.
