    Remember -- govt is the ONLY real source of honesty, integrity, compassion, and empathy.

    they did it with tobacco settlement dollars by adding it to general funds, and the lottery that was ostensibly labeled to help fund education at a higher level of dollar, has actually worked against itself, they increase payouts while funds drop to the schools.

    It's kinda desperate sounding. Like raiding your kid's piggy bank. Literally.. Probably paid for the interest on the High Speeed Rail bonds for a month..

    So there's a history of petty theft I guess..

    Speaking of which -- I can't believe $6B is about to wasted and parceled out to stakeholders for nothing.

    I'm so much more relaxed since I left in 2005. Our lottery actually credits money TO ME PERSONALLY for my daughter's tuition.. Like that could ever happen in Cali....
