There is a 1 in 170 million chance that my next post will declare me the winner of Friday's Mega Million Jackpot. It really is about the dollar and the dream, and $330 million is a lot of reverie. I am not a gambler by nature, the recent stock market gyrations notwithstanding, but if the jackpot cracks $300 million they get my dollar.
I'll play lotto a couple times a year, but collect my dividends from wiser investments. If you invested $25 dollars a month in jellybean stocks you could make more money than daily lottery players, for chrissakes.
