Pretty sad. But it's a great gimmick for fleecing the poor. Since poorer people play the lottery more than do well-off people, the poor are essentially paying a larger share of their income to the government in what is basically a voluntary tax.

Hey, didn't Governor Richardson, back in the day, say the lottery money was going towards the schools?
