Everyone that took advantage of that man should be lined up and kicked in the groin.

    To me, this was the most disturbing part of the whole article- "He says he wanted the cash, but by taking it all he is in danger of losing the government benefits he has relied on to survive."   That is just abuse of the system plain and simple.

    "If I had a dollar for everytime I didn't win the lottery, I'd be even."

      Mr Malcolm Ramsey's story gets repeated so many times in so many ways that I have nothing to say. I hope he lives to tell the tale of how lack of planning and discipline can wipe out a fortune in record time.

        How were lottery officials to know he was mentally ill, and had a guardian helping him with financial matters?  This situation is not the man who won fault.  He did the best he could considering he's mentally ill.  It's also not the Florida lottery officials fault. This is simply an unforntunate situation.  The only people who should be ashamed are the ones who took advantage of Ramsey!!!  They should be ashamed, but sadly they're not.  They got what they wanted out of him.  One day they will pay the price for their actions.

          It's really sad that no one (family) had any time for him when he was put there, but now the money came in, there they are, hands out! Puke

          Exactly.  It's very, very sad.

            My ex-wife once lost 185 lbs. of ugly fat.

            She divorced me. 

            She took all her crap and over half of mine when she left, too.

              This is a tragi-comedy!  I found it both sad and uproariously hilarious....and such is life.  This guy obviously won because he is not desperate, so Law of Attraction matched his desire to win and...VOILA!  Not to worry, he will win again.  You definitely learn who your true friends are when you win.

                I think that's why she divorced me.

                  And the fact that the court stepped in to protect him probably registered to him as the government stealing his money, ergo even more paranoia in the future.


                  I think his family ought to be beaten and boiled in oil.
