What does Mega Millions Lottery Represent?

William Heise sums it up:

I don’t play the lottery, as I have always viewed it as a tax on the poor and minorities. Governments dangle the prospect of shifting people from lower income status to a higher income status without the intermediary step of having to work for such rewards. That is the way that the more educated among us do it, using our hard-won education to minimize risk in the marketplace while hoping to gain usually small (and hopefully steady) rewards through hard work rather than relying on a VERY tenuous luck that has people having a better chance of being eaten by a shark or getting struck by lightning than winning the lottery.

Mr Heise was responding to an article posted on Dear Dirty America, called “Dropping Balls“. His website is here.
