Fool's Dream

        The U.S. Powerball lottery jackpot has grown to an estimated $1.3 billion. The next drawing is just three days away. Despite the fact that the odds of winning this largest lottery prize in U.S. history have already reached 1 in 292.2 million, people continue to buy tickets, dreaming about how they would spend the money should they win. Well, good luck to all. Records show that almost 1/3 of past lottery winners went bankrupt. Suicide, murder, robbery, drug abuse, and legal battles have all happened to the various winners. Personally, I'd rather quietly store up treasures in heaven, not even dreaming about how happy I'll be up there.
