[BlogEntry] Looking for a good reason not to win the lottery?


Here's one. From CNN:


Whittaker won the largest single jackpot in the nation's history when he hit a $314.9
million Powerball jackpot on Christmas Day 2002. He chose to accept a lump sum of
about $113 million after taxes.

Since then, Whittaker's vehicle, business and home have been broken into
repeatedly. Last year, a strip club manager and his girlfriend were charged with
drugging Whittaker and stealing a briefcase containing more than $500,000 in cash
and cashier's checks. The money was recovered.

Nice. I never realized how lucky I was.
