Question of the Day

I heard a report on NPR last night that in spite of the recession, state lotteries are doing very well.

Do you buy state lottery tickets? If so, have you ever won anything?

I used to buy them on a lark when I lived in Colorado. The most I ever won was five bucks. But not any more. It’s odd the how people who carry on like a banshee if someone so much as suggests raising state taxes, but the same folks will crawl on their hands and knees over broken glass to slap down a buck to buy a state lottery ticket.
