Watching CNN cover the PB Jackpot over the holiday, I learned something about Lottery Officials.  Someone from the Nebraska Lottery actually stated that when the winner came forward, if they didn't have proper legal and financial representatives, they would recommend appropriate names and places.  I guess they are tired of all the horror stories about winners blowing Jackpots, and its to the Lottery Assn. interest to have positive stories about people handling their Sudden Wealth in appropriate ways. 

 That was a good thing to learn.  I hope the winner(s) do the right thing and live happily ever after!  WOW!  A $124,000,000.

    If they were really interested in helping potential jackpot winners, they would publish some information for players to consider long before they won anything.  There are plenty of legal and financial advisers and sixty days is not enough time to sort the bad ones out from the better ones.
