Lottery Tickets

I live in North Carolina and our new state-sponsored gambling program… I mean, our new lottery… opens today. At work, I’ve already overheard several hallway conversations in which lottery ticket purchases were mentioned. For my fellow North Carolinians who are considering a purchase, just remember that a dollar can buy you a tasty hamburger at McDonald’s. Oh, and burning your money will at least keep you warm.
