Mega Millions Mania (Or, how many "m" alliterations can I come up with in one month?")
Here's what I love about all the people lined up to buy a chance at tonight's $540 million jackpot: Hope springs eternal, despite 176 million-to-1 odds. The downside is all the people who will "bet the rent" on the dream of being a half-billionaire. Yes, I will play, but with a limit of ten - maybe twenty - bucks. Why? Because I'm a cockeyed optimist, too. And, someone's gotta win it...right?
