Accurate Lottery Quote of the Day

"The way I see it, the lottery is a voluntary tax on those who cannot do math."

-- Mark Rose

By the way, in Tennessee, where lottery revenues are received disproportionately from the lower classes and lottery proceeds are disproportionately disbursed to college students from the middle class, the lottery is largely a redistributionist scheme that voluntarily takes money from the have nots and gives it to the haves.
