And I hope whoever it is quits their job and make room for someone who needs the job.
These people who win the lottery and say they will continue working because they will be bored really get me.
BORED? How shallow is your life?
Geez, I could get up in the morning and go over to the gym for several laps in the pool. Come home work in the garden. Go for lunch. Take in the many cultural events Buffalo has to offer.
With millions, you could travel, take a weekend trip to NYC and take in a Broadway show, or take a "heritage" trip (Mount Vernon, Monticello, Philly, Gettysburg, Williamsburg, DC).
Trips to the spa, massages, pedicures,
if you can't figure how to "unbore" your life, give me the money, I will show you what to do with it!

Megabucks or not, I would get bored if I didn't have a job. I'm glad I finally got one after being without for two years. I wasn't as lucky as this millionaire, but even going to college wasn't all it cracked up to be.

occassional winner from the "area" and the
area, could be...anywhere from watertown,

I'm glad to see that Buffalo Police officer act with courage and valor when confronted with criminal activity. We now have a dangerous gang banger about to be buried 6 feet under due to the good shooting of one of Buffalo's finest. My full support to the officer and his family and law enforcement brothers during the investigation.

What does that have to do with this story? Just because this is all happening in Buffalo doesn't mean it is all the same.

your comment makes no sense, but then nothing you type ever does.
explain yourself:
"What does that have to do with this story?"
exactly what does "that" refer to do, which post?
Your second sentance doesn't make sense either.
This story is about WNY's newest millinaire, and we got and shared our "disappointment" that it wasn't us, and some of share our lottery dreams.
And since Buffalo is in WNY, so if it happens in Buffalo, and we are all in WGRZ viewing area, we can discuss it on the WGRZ boards.
So I guess it is ALL THE SAME, despite your protests.
Gee, I guess it wasn't about "The Jennifer Show." That's why you think it isn't all the same, huh?

They should have a game show called "Who Wants to Gangbang and Get Shot by the Buffalo Police?" In light of the recent happenings it's good to see the BPD restate their omnipresence over the tough streets of Buffalo. One violent felon is dead (and will no longer be a danger or burden to society) and another is in custody and three assault-type weapons are off the street thanks to a job well done.

Here you go again. You must got the hots for me or something. It seems like I am the only one you observe! Bye!

bye?
didn't you say that before? So make good on your "threat" to leave and go already.
and I could also consture the same about you.
Did YOU not go to every single post I made today (and for that matter the past 2 days) and make a rotten comment about me?
Perhaps YOU have the hots for ME.
After all, YOU were the one who said "It's not me, it's these other pigs making me say it."
When you told someone to go make it with their cat.
I "observed" that you have a problem: blaming other people for YOUR stupidity. Nobody MADE you type that sh!t about making it with their cat -- YOU DID IT ALL BY YOURSELF.
AND YOU JUST LOVE THE FACT THAT I AM GIVING YOU ATTENTION.
SHUT THE FREAK UP YOU FREAKING PSYCHO. YOU HAVE A LOT OF FREAKING NERVE, GETTING IN MY BUSINESS, THEN B!TCH WHEN SOMEONE DOES IT TO YOU.
ARE YOU BIPOLAR?
YOU CALL ME A YO-YO, YOU INSULT ME, AND THEN YOU THINK I DON'T HAVE THE FREAKING RIGHT TO SAY SOMETHING BACK TO YOU.
WHO DIED AND LEFT YOU QUEEN OF THESE BOARDS
