That was Jimmy Durante's sign off at the end of his weekly tv show back in the 50's, Rosie (or so I'm told by old people).

        Dumbness in TN? I do not think they have a monopoly on dumbness.

        I doubt it compares to the polish underground offensive in WWII - they were going to use septic tanks!

        As for the States going bust and avoiding the annuity for the cash payment, where do you think the money gets invested for the greedy Staters? They have all that you won and the interest on all the jackpots they paid on in the State annuity ‘fund’. They just made a bad wager and don’t quite know how to break the news, but they gambled with somebody else’s money. They lost.

          Whatever they do, it would be crazy to suspend the lottery, that would put the state even more in the red. It may be necessary to suspend, cut or cancel some services, but lets keep the cash cow going. Let's not throw common sense totally out the window!

          We all get a lot out of lotteries!

            If they do suspend the state lottery, protest by supporting another state lottery, and let them know. Not only will they be forgoing revenue, they will be generating revenue for other states.
