We're turning America into a giant casino
Anyone who says you can get rich through gambling is a fool or a knave. Multiply the size of the prize by your chance of winning it and you'll always get a number far lower than what you put into the pot. The only sure winners are the organizers -- casino owners, state lotteries and con artists of all kinds.
