    The winner was on the Today show this morning and said he took cash which after taxes would leave him with about $85M.  The bachelor said he had always worked toward his dream of being a millionaire someday and providing for his family and community.  When asked "...and now that your dream has happen, has it changed your life?", he answered "yes, now my dream is to be a billionaire".  He figures with his winnings, he got a good start toward his new dream.

      He said that he had stopped tracking the numbers and had settled with a set of numbers that he played for the last 3 years.....

        Wow.  I've been playing my numbers for a year.  I've only won $100 off of them though. 

        How are you going to win if you don't play?

          Let's hope the CT winners also chose cash.
