powerball winnerThat quaint, out-of-the-way place …

On a long drive back from a trip yesterday, we fantasized about the $700,000,000 Powerball prize and wondered whether we should stop in one of the small, out-of-the-way western Pennsylvania small towns to buy Powerball tickets.

That’s exactly the kind of place where the winning “$758.7 million Powerball jackpot (was) won in Mass.”

Holey moley, with that kind of financial cushion, you can buy most small towns, lock, stock and barrel.

So “Lottery gets it wrong; $758.7m jackpot won in Chicopee, not Watertown.”
