Congrats to Jonathan Vargas! Put the money in something safe for now and take some investment classes. Thumbs Up

I should have added that when I lived in NC a fellow from Wachovia Bank taught an excellent financial planning course on a saturday at the local community college. It was well worth the cost!

        Okay, people.  I know we're all nice folks here and wish this young man a happy and healthy life.  But this sentence has to aggravate you just a little!

            I heard on the news this morning that he has started receiving death threats. He said that he might hire a bodyguard.

              Means nothing.  Every one should have a security detail for the first thirty-sixty days.  Then the ego sicjo's forget what they were concentrating on and move to another amusement.  I would imagine kidnapping threats are less common then whiners wanting freebees.  The whiners would bother me more.  They manage to look soooo sad and down trodden.  Amazing how they push how horrible life is "for the children," but manage to live a fairly decent life and travel around fairly frequent. Why aren't they filthy dirty and barely able to exist?  Must be they are keeping some for themselves. I wonder how many children the Pope-Mobile would feed in Darfor?

                      Humm interesting site.  I wonder how that would feel about one entitled "whitevoices.com" and only highlighted white people?  I noticed they are entirely in the tank for Barrack Hussen Obama, and anything that terrible WHITE woman says is ALWAYS trash. "Obama On The Brink Of Victory," "Barack Obama stepped to the brink of victory in the Democratic presidential race," "Obama Tells Gop To "lay Off" Michelle," "Obama's Plan To Whoop Mccain." Obviously an integrated America is not a consideration in 2008. Something to be proud of spreading to American children.

                        I don't believe in fate with anything besides the lottery.

                          Actually, the Pope-Mobile was created because someone tried to assasinate the Pope several years ago.  It is a bullet proof protection vehicle, not a luxury Rolls Royce.  Not a fair comment from you considering Catholic Charities are one of the most generous charities world wide.

                          I agree on the personal security. That would be one of the arrangements to be made before you claim those winnings.  Being single, I've already gotten my CCW, which is a good first step for anyone regarding personal security.

                            Regardless of why the Pope chose to spend millions that came from people who are repeatily told to give for the poor.  I don't recall see a box labled  Save The Pope.  The fact they they give  away a lot, while still providing hunmgous worship houses, instead of something Christ would have walked through.  You can build millions of churches instead of those huge monsters filled with gold and copper  - all from donations!  Thousands of years of taking from the poor and building monster houses and worship places.  Thousand of years!  Study you history of Europe. Thousands of worship palaces. Most of which could have been used to help the needy.  Nope history proves my point.

                            As far as security,  I have a concealed license, was one of the first ones to get one in Oklahoma and immediately got one Nevada.  Hundreds of thousands of rounds, and numerous hours in defensive shooting classes show my prepardness.  Show me a robbery victum or a rape victum, and I'll show you someone who fooled themself into believing they thought they were safe and did not need protection. No one ever attacked them - until they did attack them!
