Not that I would ever want the money...

but it good to hear when someone who "deserves" it wins the lotto Eight workers at a Nebraska meatpacking plant are really bringing home the bacon now: They stepped forward Wednesday to claim the biggest lottery jackpot in U.S. history — $365 million. Back when I wanted to work in government, I was a City Hall intern for a summer in Grand Island, Nebraska. Grand Island also had a meat-packing plant and the smell was....so horrible I was vegetarian for most of the summer. I couldn't (and still can't) imagine what it was like inside one of these plants. So I'm glad to hear some meatpackers are hitting the big time.
