The Lottery

Americans are living in a kind of Twilight Zone, a random lottery with all of our names in the rolling barrel, musical chairs of the absurd. And, when the music stops, when the Reaperís hand withdraws numbers from the barrel, people are shot to death.

Stranger yet, our laws and minds have been twisted in such a way that this is acceptable.

1. The odds of getting shot are far better than any of us winning

a money lottery.

2. I've been shot...

Three times in my life.

Have never won a cash lottery.

I can vouch.

3. That's an idea for an ad. "Americans have a better chance of getting shot

3 times in their life than hitting a lottery".

4. I'm not sure how the lobby would twist it...

I am sure they would come up with something.
