It's only public money until they give it to the winner,then it becomes private money.Its bad enough that they steal <snip> near half of it for taxes,they don't need to have the winners do the dog & pony show,too.By the way,if Obama gets re-elected look for him and the federal govt.to steal more of your lottery winnings in the form of higher taxes.

      Excellent point Calif-Dream $. There are some who would want the entire world to know of their good fortune, choice is a good thing.  Cheers

        I think that the winners name shouldn't be released to the public but if someone wanted to find out who won the lotto, there should be some sort of way of doing it but should involve going through some sort of system of checks and balances. And it should never be made public unless it was won by fraud. A totally anonymous lottery sounds great on paper, but it also opens itself up to a massive amount of rumors on who actually won.
