Here's my latest scoop off the streets of Providence, Rhode Island. I've babbled on in this blog before on the lottery and how I feel about the way our government, "we," choose to raise money... How I feel its an underhanded tax on dreams and desire for a better life... How I feel it feeds off those most in need of such fantasy, the poor... But I also have to admit this is fun. The money I scoop off the streets wouldn't pay a bill. It would buy bubble gum, but I'm not into bubble gum. It wouldn't even run a load of wash in the local laundry mat. But one thing it does is make walking down the street a bit entertaining and subversive. It can buy a lottery ticket.
Oh. I didn't win. NPR, you have to keep waiting for my donation, sorry.
