State Lottery

In recent times I have heard over and over again about the negative ramifications that the lottery would impose upon the state. I feel that it should be a personal choice in regards to the lottery. People go to the casinos everyday and spend hundreds, perhaps thousands of dollars.

I am sorry legislature, but all Mississippians cannot afford to do that. Perhaps a person in the state can afford to spend a dollar and win big or maybe send a fortunate student to college without having to cross state lines and giving other states all that unclaimed revenue.

Why not do like these other states and give it a try? they seem to be prospering. They certainly can't be any more intelligent than us, and you can always back out. Thanks, Reggie Varnado
