    Are we saying that this type of gambling should be better regulated?
    If so, I agree.
    Gambling is for losers.....learned early in life.
    The payoff is much better used to upgrade our schools.
    And this "meth-head" thing...
    How can sane people do this to themselves?

    Fox News, classy?
    American news - classy?
    Two big NOs.

    Chances of him keeping it are low.
    Is he ever going to be crying the Tea-Party blues when he discovers what his tax bill will be.

    He is probably not savvy enough to figure out the taxes himself or hire a competent tax attorney.

    Well, Fox is honest. Call a spade a spade, I say. If someone has a jacked-up grill, then they have a jacked-up grill. Besides, are we supposed to feel bad for a redneck who just hit the number for a quarter billion just because Fox picked on him?

    Hell, he can go buy some teeth.

    Is that some sort of requirement when when winning the lottery, to say that you won't quit your low paying, low status, mind numbingly tedious and repetitive job?
    Low pay and low status are commonplace to a certain strata of society, God bless them. And tedium and repetitive working conditions are accepted, if not appreciated, by people who have no other options.
