Once again the Powerball lottery reached a high amount, and once again, Nevadans flocked to Arizona and California because the biggest gambling state in the country does not have a lottery.

Not that we the people don’t want one, but we all know who runs this town: the casinos and their owners.

It’s nice that we are helping the schools of other states while our schools here in Nevada cry for money.

Yes, the casinos are our mainstay here, and we wouldn’t want them to go out of business if we all started to spend a dollar on a lottery ticket.
