Back to $10 Million

Sadly, I got no return from the $10 voluntary tax I paid Wednesday.

(That's 10 Powerball tickets, for those playing from home.)

It had been so long since I had bought tickets, that the Scantron form I had filled in was no longer valid. Powerball had added another two numbers to the "choose 5" bucket. (Like a 1 in 120 million chance of winning wasn't low enough.)

Now that the prize is back to a "measly" $10 million, I'll be ignoring the lottery again.

Why couldn't I be as lucky as Senator Judd Gregg?

On a whim prompted by the frenzy over Wednesday's $340 million Powerball jackpot, the New Hampshire Republican bought a ticket that matched five of the six numbers in the Powerball game.

He collected a $853,492 check Thursday.
