Arcticle about the "outing" of a Powerball winner.  Ripe for your comments...Wink

I wanna die in my sleep - like my grandfather. 

Not screaming and yelling - like the passengers in his car. Confused

    the guy who wrote that article is just trying to sell a book ...yea so what that he discovered the name of the winner ...I think Mr. Huff is smart and old enough not to blow it ...I dont see where he made a mistake...Not setting up a trust ? not always neccessary ..Not taking annuity? 95% of people take lump sum...Guy just trying to sell his book by the way he sounds..nothing wrong with the winner

      I agree with benmas.

      Not a fan of any writer promoting his own book, and using overgeneralized statements. ALL Lotto winners who come public blow their money??? Get real. The kid who was only 26 is fairing well with his business and still lives a well budgeted life as do many others who are penny wise. 

      I commend the article for letting folks know that it is important to consult with an attorney. So you can sue the guy that snooped into your right to claim anonymously!
