A tax on the who?

After reading this Onionesque yet sincere (I believe) letter to my hometown newspaper, I’m left with two possibilities regarding its author: He’s either living, breathing evidence that lotteries do indeed preferentially target the intellectually underendowed or a cognizant anti-gambling type bent on marshalling support — real or synthesized — for his stance.

    “Is our children learning?” Um, not yet. Maybe a remedial math class might be in order.

    It would be really funny if 60 Minutes actually DID a story… about the brain-challenged Mr. Reynolds, and the failure of the educational system.

    I think the writer should buy lots more lottery tickets. That would improve his chances of recouping at least $3 on his $60/month investment.

    Hmmm… 60 minutes, 60 dollars. I wonder what this guy’s IQ is? Any idiot knows that he is buying his tickets from the wrong end of the roll.
