Laid-Off Worker Wins Powerball

snippet:
"A man who was laid off last week from his job at a tractor factory claimed an $89 million Powerball prize Monday with the sole winning ticket.

"I woke up thinking I'm going to look for a job, and I don't know where the money's going to come from," said Tim Rivers. "And by the grace of God, that money came in."'

That's nice, but...

snippet:
This is the fourth time in the last five months that someone from Indiana has won a Powerball jackpot, and the 32nd since the multi-state lottery was created 12 years ago ? more than from any other state. Four of the past six winners have been from Indiana.

I lived in Indiana for 2 1/2 years and never won a damn thing

Guess you have to be a native :)

I'm guessing they win because there's a lot of poor, stupid people in Indiana who buy a lot of lottery tickets. If the area I lived in was any indication. And it was.
