    No.  We're not an anonymous state, but at least we can decline photographs and interviews.

        Remember that interpreter that was supposed to do sign language for the Mandela funeral but he was crazy and just made stuff up? 

        I'd put on a disguise and do that for a few minutes, then bow and leave.

          I was gonna wear a false beard and mustache.

          And then I remembered I have a real beard and mustache.

          So I'm gonna get the glasses with the big nose instead.

              I'd hire a make-up artist/hair stylist and ask her to make me look like somebody she would not like to date/remember.

                "The man accused of faking sign interpretation while standing alongside world leaders at Nelson Mandela's memorial service said he hallucinated that angels were entering the stadium,he suffers from schizophrenia and has been violent in the past," reports the Associated Press.

                l guess you would not care a bit if someone accused you of hallucinating as well huh HoLeeKau?

                    If I had to face the camera I would make sure my make up was perfect!!  I would read a short statement thanking the lottery.  I would give no personal information about myself and would take no questions.

                      Thank you for coming and remember, I won $-----------( fill in the cash value) not the phony advertised $----------(fill in the annuity amount)

                      and 50% of that will be confiscated by the IRS  so don't come around with your hand out.

                      My friends Mossberg and Smith&Wesson will be with me. LOL

                       

                      If this media thing is controlled by the lottery they may decide to not use it.

                       

                      I'm not sure my state requires a photo op, I have heard of winners that I could not find a picture of,

                      and took note that publicity of them died down quickly.

                            A tacky, obnoxious colored wig, sunglasses, bad makeup, and grandma jeans. Lol. My husband wouldn't be present unless he decided to wear a wig and sunglasses too!

                              I like that! you could also tell the press that the secret to getting $30 million in your bank  is by first winning a $100 million lottery jackpot.
