I am so very thankful, that I live in a state, where you can claim the prize anonymously. When I win, that is what I will do. Although I do know of many people, who would love the popularity and attention they would get, with their picture plastered everywhere....I am a very private person, and I would fear for my safety. I know there are people that would shoot and kill you, for $100 bucks or less, it happens all the time. I have small children, and would fear kidnapping of myself, or my kids. So, in my eyes, I think it should definitely be a personal decision. Just because I'd like to win the jackpot, it doesn't mean I want everyone to know about it. I have found the majority of people here, DO go public, and very few are anonymous, even though we have the choice. I'm sure it would probably be that way most everywhere, then, and thus it wouldn't be so bad if every state offered this option.
