  If someone is rich a one-time $60,000 payment won't take his home away. Sorry I live i LA maybe we have a different well-being criteria here...

I never said anything about a one-time payment of $60,000 taking anybody's home away and neither did the article.

The article said some individuals lost up to $60,000 AND  many people lost their homes.

Now although most of us here in Tennessee live in cardboard boxes or old burned out vans down by the river we still consider it somewhat unseemly that people in LA might consider people with a home and $60,000 to hand somebody, "poor".

I guess none of us Tennesseans would fit in out there in LA. It's for the best though, we'd never make it in LA.

We speak English here and we like to breathe air, not smoke.

So enjoy your LA "well-being criteria", crime, illegal aliens, smog and letting the democrats tell you that you can't carry a gun.

Tell Ahhnold we said hey.

PS. How's the Quiche crop this year?

    Amazingly enough, there's a story that explains just that at the very beginning of this thread.

    At least some aspects of the lottery are being scrutinized.  I would like to see some independent computer software auditors given access to the inner machinations of the lotteries.  Since lotteries are state entities I suppose it would have to be multiple independent state level audits.  The reason I'm not hopeful this will happen anytime soon is because unless someone discovers evidence, statistical or otherwise, that something is awry in a state lottery enterprise somewhere, there will be no incentive to do so.  The computerized Millionaire Raffle in Pennsylvania awards four 1 million dollar prizes about four times a year, for a total of $16m.  Without a complete audit of the processes and procedures involved, the only other way that fraud could be discovered is if one of the millionaires was found to have had the winning number list in advance of the official draw.  Oh well, I wasn't going to spend any more time on this, but then I noticed your post here. Disapprove

      You know how that works jimmy, unless people stick together and demand something, it ain't gonna happen.

      Or the best you'll get is them investigating themselves and we know how that usually turns out too.
