    All the Bush rants appear to be off topic.  Are you guys saying that if you wanted to come up with the best post on Lottery Post in 2006 it would be about politics?  Excuse me for finding this a little strange, but this is a LOTTERY FORUM.  That's why I keep political statements in my BLOG.

    Would someone like to continue this by actually posting something lottery related?  Might be nice for a switch.

      How about another category, the most prophetic post, not a numbers prediction, bit sonething like someone predicting someone from LP hitting a major jackpot, or one of the multi-state games being revamped, something like that.

        This one, I want to nominate this one for humor / irony / witticism:



         Anonymity has always been a popular topic on this board. I've lived in several states including MA, NH and now FL and I don't think there's anyway to keep your name out of the public records, even with a Trust.  Maybe I'm not recalling the NH laws correctly, since I never won enough to worry about them. But I thought that no matter how your money is claimed, the name of the trust, the lawyer and the person who owns the trust will be published. That doesn't mean that it will be printed in the newspaper or on a website necessarily, but available for public viewing. I wouldn't want my name in the paper just because of security. That's why I'll move before I claim any large prize. I agree that it's better to keep your picture out of the paper, but there's no attorney I really trust enough with millions of dollars to pickup my check, so I'd have to go in person anyway!  I realize that some articles say that NH is a state where a winner can remain anonymous, and some winners have chosen that option, but below in red are direct quotes from their website, so this issue is confusing to me. I won't quote everything on this subject since there are so many sections, but:

        New Hampshire state law requires the winner's name, town and amount won be available for public information. A winner's street address and phone number is not considered public information.

        and:    If the claimant is a trust, the individual named as trustee shall furnish photographic identification to the commission at the time of the claim.

        then it adds:If the claim is being filed by another individual on behalf of the claimant, the claimant’s original picture identification or a photostatic copy of the claimant’s picture identification as well as the filing individual’s original picture identification shall be presented to the commission at the time of the claim.

        Under Confidentiality:  Upon written request, the commission shall release the name, town or residence, date of prize, and the gross and net amounts of the annual prize payment of a winner. Financing statements filed with the commission shall be public records.

        There is an exemption in the NH General Statutes called 91-A:5 which is to protect a party from invasion of privacy. Maybe a lottery winner could refer to that rule and then there would be court hearings, legal fees, your money would be held in escrow waiting for the court's decision, and if you won then there'd be a new law with your name "Jones vs NH", so now you'd be even more famous for winning your case to remain anonymous.
