dang. Glad I am only out $2.

Why doesn't America do this to help repay our national debt? People often refer to the lottery as "poor people tax"...yet people from all socioeconomic classes play. I guess that's one way to get everyone to participate.

Oh SURE! Easy for YOU to say! Do you know how much of a discounted Private Island I need to buy now?

(No, didn't win, although I am in TX so at least was in a winning state for once)
