Lottery fever

Money for rent and food will be spent by many pursuing the elusive dream of winning the fool’s gold, ignoring the fact that the lottery is a voluntary tax on the poor. Others will trick themselves into believing the other hoax that the proceeds will help education.

The next Mega Millions jackpot will be an estimated $1.6 billion — the highest total in U.S. lottery history. The cash payout is $904 million. “We’re in unchartered territory,” Gordon Medenica, Mega Millions lead director and the director of Maryland Lottery and Gaming, told “Good Morning America” Saturday. “]
As for me, I am waiting for the jackpot to reach 3 billions before I risk my $2 for a ticket.
