That neighborhood where he bought the ticket looks fairly ghetto... my experience while living in DC, people in these urban areas ain't very friendly and if they are, it is only because they want something from you.

Soon after I got stationed in DC, I remember getting a lot of blank stares and frowns from people if I gave them a friendly hello as I passed 'em by while walking home from post. After a while, I just gave up, people there seemed to prefer to keep to themselves.

I hope Pedro has heard of Jack Whittaker's failure and chooses not to go down a similar path. May God bless and protect him and his family.

Kumo, that is a blanket statement.

    What would he want with life insurance, and for such a small amount?

      Just read about him on the news here in the UK, nice guy but he needs to go learn English and maybe take a class or two in how to keep his money in check. Hopefully he doesn't give in to the leeches who will suck him dry.

                    Congratulations on winning this Powerball Jackpot. I didn't know that the winning numbers ended up in a double number to be a jackpot winning ticket for the first time in 2013.

                          Casiano said he was making a sandwich at the family store when his dad called with the good news at 4:30 p.m. — and that he didn’t want to close the store and lose business until his friends convinced him to.

                           

                           

                          The work ethic and business savvy of this young man speaks volumes. Unlike Leroy Fick who won far less, his son did much to drive them back into poverty!

                              He has nothing to worry about. He'll blend in well with the other 2 million Pedro Quezadas.
