Billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson says he's interested in building a casino in the northern New Jersey Meadowlands if the state allows the expansion of gambling beyond Atlantic City.

   Speaking Wednesday at a casino industry forum in Las Vegas, the chairman of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation called the East Rutherford site "a very attractive place" for a casino. The area is home to the Meadowlands sports complex where the NFL's Jets and Giants play, as well as the Meadowlands race track, just outside New York City.
