          This idea has been pitched to lotteries before.  What would make things better would be if you could repeat letters, making it more like a 5-digit game.  That way, the odds would be 1 in 111,111 for the tprizes could be bigger, and the top prize could be a rolling jackpot.

          I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.
