Hope and the lottery

So no one won the Big Max…or whatever it is called.  Sorry I’m not too knowledgeable about all the lottery titles.  What I do know is that there are more and more, and the prizes keep getting bigger.  In order for the prizes to get bigger lotteries need more losers.  Yup that’s right – more losers.

Of course people buy lottery tickets to be a winner – but the odds are you’ll be a loser.  In fact you would be further ahead to play the horses – at least there you can play the odds and study the history of the horses – not that I’m advocating gambling on horses.  Far from it.  What I advocate is investing your money in others.

Whether you donate to your church, a charity, give to a poor cousin, support your kid’s future.  The investment and payback will be far more satisfying.

In the meantime if you’re buying lottery tickets I guess I should thank you.  You’re keeping my taxes lower.
