Brother, Can You Spare A Billion?

Powerball is still on my noggin this morning. It appears (as of this writing) that nobody won the grand prize of matching five numbers and separately drawn Powerball last night, so the prize Wednesday will be a minimum of $1,300,000,000.

I figure with the high demand for tickets, the prize should go up to $1,500,000,000 with ease. If there’s one winner, and that one victor takes the lump sum, that’s about $900,000,000 or so after Uncle Sam gets his cut if the prize gets to a billion and a half.

There’s so much money on the line now, I don’t know if I will feel happy if one person (or pool) wins the dough, or feel sorry for them.

More on this topic as events progress.
