I'm in hiding


Powerball Fever

Record Jackpot Winner Probably Laying Low

Someone, somewhere held the only winning ticket for the record $365 million Powerball jackpot, but likely wasn't in a rush to come forward, Nebraska lottery officials said Sunday.

The only ticket matching the winning numbers drawn Saturday night for the multistate lottery was sold at a U-Stop convenience store in Lincoln, Nebraska Lottery spokesman Brian Rockey said.

It was the biggest jackpot on record for any lottery in the United States.
I have the matching... oh, forget that; I play MegaMillions, not Powerball, and I haven't recently been to Lincoln. Damn.

Well, let us hope the winner does some good with the winnings. So much money; so much good.

You know, the only way to spend that kind of money is to give it away.

I'll take some.
