The Lottery
Noise from the mind of a fool

Hi,

The lottery is a tax on the stupid.

Yes, it can be a fun game to play in moderation. However, if the state of Georgia really wanted some of our money they would pass a law allowing us to claim the jackpot anonymously. Some states allow winners to claim the prize and remain anonymous to the press and everyone else. Georgians do not have the luxury of voluntarily remaining anonymous.

More people in Georgia might play more often if we had that protection option. Now, how you choose to broadcast to the world about your new million home is your choice. However, we should have the option of not publicizing to the world on national television too.

How do we change the rules? Contact your state representatives in Atlanta and ask them to consider changing to a system where winners can remain anonymous if they so choose.

Walkie

But, does it still remain a tax on the stupid - we just don't know who's stupid (but lucky!)?

Drive-by Windows
February 27, 2014
Hi, Some of us are wise enough to stay away from the drive-by windows. Others, could not survive in an ice storm without them. There must be a better way to order dinner than yelling back and forth through a speaker system that never works properly. Repeating orders while yelling ...
