Would you really want to win $500 million with all the people's lives that went down the tubes after winning the Powerball?

No, Mike, I don't want to even think about it. I think the statement of the day is "You can't win if you don't play." (or something similar). The statement is made as an encouragement to play. However, the same words also mean that if you want no part of winning, then don't play. For those not wanting to win, keep your money in the wallet. Yes, Mike, the trail of disaster for large-sum winners is long and dirty. I'm sure that there are a few players who might be capable of handling a win, but the vast majority of players are ill-equipped to win. Just listening to the TV/radio interviews of those playing when asked "What would you do?" is enough evidence.

I can honestly say I wouldn't know what to do with $550 million. But I certainly would take the $1 million runner-up prize!

Whew! Escaped "the big one!"
