The I-Can't-Do-Math Tax

North Carolina's lottery started today. According to the News & Observer players bought six and a half million dollars worth of tickets statewide today. Unfortunately for the purchasers of those tickets, the odds against your ticket paying out are "not, not good at all" [sic].

But hey, as with so many other justifications for poor government behavior, it's for the kids.
