NOLA HARRAH'S  CASINO DEAL:  Louisiana lawmakers only have until this Friday to come to some agreement over the controversial Harrah's New Orleans-landbased casino deal.  At issue is whether or not to extend a state contract with the casino for 30 years and granting it exclusivity as the only land-based casino in the city if the company agrees to invest $350 million in non-gaming improvements in its New Orleans property.
